Heney Silk Mosaic by Original Style
Please note this is a paperfaced / film-faced glass mosaic – please see information below:
These have a covering of paper or film on the front surface rather than mesh backing. Some individual pieces are clear/translucent so any mesh backing would show through after installation to spoil the overall look. Use a white, rapid setting, cement based flexible adhesive. Because the film or paper facing is on the front of these mosaics it is difficult to see what they look like. Peel back part of the paper or plastic face on one tile BEFORE fixing to ensure the surface finish is what you expected.
These are suitable for swimming pools, steam rooms and saunas as 100 % of the tesserae are available for contact with the adhesive. For steam rooms and saunas use epoxy adhesive and grout.
Due to their translucent nature they are paper faced to avoid the appearance of mesh showing through the glass mosaics once installed. Paper faced tiles should be adhered in the same way as glass mosaics, however, unlike mesh backed tiles the paper should face outwards.
Fix a small section of mosaics at a time. Fifteen to twenty minutes after application of the mosaic sheet, use a damp sponge and warm water to lightly wet the paper until it turns dark. Test a corner of the paper by pulling lightly at a downward angle from corner to opposite corner. If the paper does not peel away cleanly sponge again until it peels away easily. If the mosaic sheet starts to come away leave a little while longer to let the adhesive set more.
Once the paper has been removed, inspect the installation and straighten any joints not aligned. Should you discover any unacceptable tiles, remove and replace them before the adhesive dries. Always remove the paper as you go, do not wait until all the sheets have been fixed before removing it.
Repeat the above process until all sheets have been installed.
