How to adhere mosaic tiles to galvanized metal

by | DIY Questions

Freda asked

I am using a galvanized steel stock tank (horse trough) as a pond. I would like to adhere Rock-on-a-Roll which is made up of a variety of polymers laid over a flexible backing, which are textured and colored to replicate the aesthetic qualities of bedrock. The product can be put in or outside of a pond.

I would like to know what adhesive to use that will attach this product to galvanized steel. It’s not imperative but I’d prefer it to be fish safe. The pond is outside, obviously.

Hi Freda, Thanks for writing Freda. What a brilliant idea!

We’ve been trying to come up with the ideal vessel for our new recirculating waterfall, so thanks for the tip.

Here’s the adhesive I think will work for you. It’s called ECO-BOND HD100. It’s life friendly and is weather proof.

It’s the first one on the list, and runs about $4.50 a tube.

When you finish your project I’d love to see pictures. I’m sure it will turn out great.



Awesome! I will be sure to send you a picture. Thanks so much.
