How do I install the tiles?
How do I prepare my walls / splash back for optimal adhesion?
It's crucial to make sure that the surface is correctly prepared for optimal adhesion and durability. The surface needs to be clean from dust and grease. Make sure that you use a powerful grease remover that is recommended for your surface. Let the surface dry completely before application.
You may want to consider scrubbing painted surfaces with a high grit sandpaper. This will help removing the oily layer and the tiles will stick better to the surface.

Each sheet is approximately 25cm x 25cm x 0.2cm. There is a small variation between the different designs and some are only 23cm. Please refer to each model for their individual dimensions. There are no edge pieces. You will need to cut a the first and last sheet to make a straight edge. The overlapping are is reduced by 2cm-3.3cm depending on design.
