Question

Need To Strengthen Glass Tile For Floor Trim Accent


Any tile guys:

This floor transition will use a small (2" wide) row of backsplash tiles as an accent trim, flush with the adjacent floorings. One tile guy suggested I use a 1/16th" acrylic layer on top to strengthen the glass for foot traffic, but i was considering an epoxy as a stronger alternative. Any thoughts on final clarity, possible hazing, and resistance to scratching or cracking with these 2 options? Are there other products I should consider for this strengthening top layer?

Thanks!

Do you think you are going to get another answer than you got on your other thread? Why not just call the guy who told you he could do it and ask him for a product?

Re: Need To Strengthen Glass Tile For Floor Trim Accent


My other thread was posted in flooring, asking about the intersection of bamboo flooring to glass tile.
This post was asking about the possible methods of strengthening glass tile with acrylic or epoxy.

If you're confused about the difference, perhaps you should consult a dictionary before opening your mouth.

But THANKS.

[it's amazing how many useless smartass jerks feel the need to chime in their 2 cents when they have jack **** to offer for solutions. LOL]
