Mosaic Mounting Tape 6 inches x 100 feet is a transparent adhesive film used for face-mounting mosaic tile designs for rapid installation. The adhesive film bonds strongly enough to mosaic tile for the sheets to be handled and transported (including shipping), but it releases cleanly without residue. It is also water resistant. Note that the roll is 6 inches wide, but it can be used for 12-inch sheets merely by using two strips slightly overlapped. The tape is fully transparent so that patterns divided between multiple sheets can be aligned and grout joints matched. The tape comes in a continuous roll 100 feet long.
Mosaic Mounting Tape 6 inches
- transparent adhesive film in a roll
- 6 inches x 100 feet
- water resistant adhesive
- adhesive releases cleanly from all tile materials tested with no sticky residue.
Unlike fiberglass mesh, the mounting film mounts to the face of the tile, which leaves the backs fully exposed for bonding with mortar or adhesives, thus increasing the strength and longevity of outdoor and wet mosaics. Mosaic designs can be laid out in a mounting grid and then taped, or you can take a piece of tape and press tile unto it face down, which is often done when using hand-cut pieces of tile instead of whole tiles.
