Tiling on to plywood?


Postby prbaxter » Sat Mar 15, 2008 2:38 pm

I've just read numerous plywood related tiling posts, and still i'm a bit confused, hence this post.

Simple question.

Can I tile directly on to 12mm plywood?

Can I also point out, that the area of plywood is about 11inches square, covering an old airvent hole, and will also have an electric extractor fan covering most of the centre, so i'm really only tiling round the edges.

Ta,

Yes but prime it with an acrylic primer first.

".........................Im really only tiling round the edges."

Doesn't matter

"Ta"

De rien.
