We recommend that a professional tile installer be used to install our product. Use a latex-modified thin set mortar such as TEC 393 or like material. Under no circumstances should a pre-mixed latex/grouting product be used. Other applications, such as molding for a wooden countertop, will require construction adhesive or an epoxy (LATICRETE 310 works great!). Small amounts of hot glue plus the adhesive works best. The hot glue holds the piece in place until the adhesive sets up.
For fire surrounds where the tile is to be applied on the surface of the brick, we recommend a high temperature Silicone adhesive with the hot glue technique.
For setting in stone, we recommend high temperature brick mortar. We do not recommend that the bronze tile be installed inside the firebox; only the outside surround should be decorated.
