Kitchen backsplash, here glass, you see a little bit later on in this exactly what it is. Just a few things it's important to remember when you're installing glass tile, you have to use a high polymer. What I'm, using here with Super flex, pretty much always use white thin-set, as I said, have to be a thin set that is specifically specified for glass tile. You want to make sure that you don't use mastic, you don't use any period themed set because the tile for a while it's just going to stop falling off. So this is a very important thing and uses the right size trial.
Here I'm using a 3/16 3/16 inch v notch trowel and we set a few tiles and then you are you check your coverage. Make sure you get good coverage. You want to make sure that you try and keep the glass as clean as possible when you install it because this super flex really sticks to this tile like crazy and it's pretty hard to get off at once. It will come off, but it's just easier. If you just keep it clean and if you're working along so now, what I'm going to be doing here is I'm checking to my coverage see that good coverage on the back, I'm happy with the coverage, and I hope you enjoy.
So this is a time when I'm installing it's a glass tile 8 by 2 inches and it's got a while back, so it's not transparent now on the ends over here. What I'm doing is I cut the tile, I'm also going to do it over here. So I cut the tile and I polished the end. That's it. I polished, that's a factory edge and that's the end. I polish, so it's gonna know, so you don't have to put any kind of water anything. It just goes straight down across like that. So a tile, that's being cut on the wet saw, looks like this. I mean it's very, very rough. That's why you can't use that on the end of a backslash and you need to polish it.
So when you polish it looks like this. So, that's why you have to polish the end to make it look acceptable, and it's got rough edges on here. Doesn't matter, sometimes they cut a little nicer. Sometimes they don't. So that's why you need to polish it a lot of times to cut these tiles. With a long tail like this, you can just not score it and then just break it with your hands. So this is how you do it store it and then it'll just break like that. Sometimes you can do it a couple of times.
