QUESTIONCan I adhere tile to a metal fire pit? - I do ceramic auction projects. I purchased a metal fire pit with an outside ring of approx 3 in. I need to adhere sm ceramic objects around the perimeter. What product do you recommend to hold up to the heat and adhere to a metal surface.
ANSWERANSWER - If the metal is scarified and cleaned you can bond ceramic tile to it with a tile epoxy adhesive. Tile can withstand the heat and the epoxy adhesive can take heat to an extent, but not direct heat, as the epoxy will soften if the temperature gets too high.
You can go to our website and resources to installation product manufacturer to get a list of manufacturers of tile installation products that include epoxy adhesives. Follow their recommendations for applications to metal subject to heat.
