Faux means fake and in our case it means that our tiles look tin or metal but they in fact are not, they made out of PVC. They are only about 5 -7 Ounces in weight. Can be glued to any stable flat surface. Drywall, Plywood, Plaster and more. These glue up tiles come with over lapping edging and once installed the seems are almost invisible and so they crete that seemsless look. These tiles are used in homes, restaurants, retails spaces, movie theathers, casinos and also by professional photographers as backdrops.
