I am making large hanging tile wall pieces, up to 45 inches long. I am
using silicone II clear, to adhere these large square (14"inch x
14"inch) tiles to plywood that has been sanded and finished. I have
used a commercially manufactured ceramic tile adhesive but prefer the
silicone II product, except to adhere floor tiles. Though the silicone
II has to cure for 5 to 7 days I like the more flexible and soft shock
adsorbent it creates for future transporting and less weight (minimal
probably) in hanging. Thanks, Kathy Chamberlin
