How to Glue Stainless Steel to Tile

Mark O'Brien
knowledge is as follows

New tile can freshen any room, but adding an accent or design to that tile can really make a room pop. Stainless steel can give your room a classic look, and attaching the stainless steel pieces is easy with J-B Weld.

Things You'll Need

A plastic plate

J-B Weld



Putty knife

Rubber gloves

Step 1

Squirt dime-size piles of epoxy from both the black and red tubes of J-B Weld onto the plastic plate..

Step 2

Stir the piles together with the tip of the toothpick.

Step 3

Scrub the tile surface with a rag to remove any dirt or debris. The tile should be clean and dry so the stainless steel will adhere to the tile.

Step 4

Use the putty knife to apply a thin (1/16 to 1/8-inch thick) coat of the epoxy mix to the back of the stainless steel. Leave a 1/4 inch of unglued area around the edges to prevent the epoxy from squeezing out when it's pressed against the tile.

Step 5

Firmly press the stainless steel piece against the tile. Wipe any drips with a damp rag. Allow it to dry for 15 hours.


Wear rubber gloves.
