Where Beauty Embraces Elegance! Installation Guide SUBSTRATE • • • • • • • • • • • Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Tile should be installed over a clean, sound, and flat surface, free of contaminates including curing compounds. Substrate should be free of cracks. INSTALLATION To avoid affecting the color of the tile, White modified thin-set is highly recommended. Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes. Grout joint should be a minimum of 1/16” and not butt set. The trowel size you can use is a 9" Trowel - 1/16" square notch. GROUTING Grout joints should be packed full and free of voids and pits. Clean excess grout as the work progresses before it has hardens completely. Acids should never be used for cleaning grout haze. Use a damp sponge for the final cleaning and to smooth out the grout joints. It is recommended to use non-sanded grout. CUTTING The recommended cutting method is to use a wet saw with a diamond blade that is specifically for cutting glass. Edges can be sanded smooth after cutting. Additional Notes: VITRAY Tiles come with a protective film on the stainless steel and mirror tiles. When these tiles are installed, please have contractor/installer leave the film until after grouting, then when wiping theses tiles down, the film should remove along with the extra grout. ALSO, please cover the hand-painted ceramics with 2 in width tape before grouting which protects them otherwise the grout goes all over them.
