Edge Finish Trim Options
High gloss acrylic shower panels can either be placed close together with a 1/8” joint sealed with neutral cure silicone or you can use either anodized aluminum or aluminum color matched profiles which are matched to your wall panel can be used to join straight sections, corners or finish the edges.
An installation kit can be purchased for your high gloss walls. The kit includes 2 tubes of neutral cure silicone, double sided tape, spatula, spacers, gloves, sandpaper and a cleaning tool.
These high gloss acrylic panels can be cut drilled and shaped with common woodworking materials and the panels can be set with double sided foam tape and neutral cure silicone. Installation will take 1/3 of the time of a tile job.
Note: Do not rub the Lustrolite surface when it’s dry. Do not use brushes or scouring pads on the high gloss surface.
High gloss panels can be used for a backsplash, shower or tub wall, bathroom, bedroom or media room. High gloss wall panels should not be used directly behind a heat source above 158 degrees Farenheit. For these areas consider using stainless steel or ceramic tiles.
Lustrolite high gloss acrylic shower panels can be cut with standard woodworking tools – so contractors and homeowners who are familiar with these tools can certainly work with the gloss panels. The following tools are best:
A simple pass with an electric planer (or sanding with a medium and fine sandpaper) will provide a nice finished edge. Another alternative is to use the anodized aluminum edge finishing pieces or to use the polished finished factory edge on the outside.
After test fitting the panel on the wall remove the protective film from the back (the color side) to apply the double sided tape and neutral cure silicone. The tape on the front (the clear side) should be removed after the silicone is made flush on the front.
Clean with a soft cloth with warm water and mild detergent. Do not use strong chemicals or window cleaning spray.
The panels can be repolished using a liquid plastic polish.
Moderate scratches can be removed with manual buffing – use a smooth circular motion.
