Grout for Stainless Wall Tile
Hello All. Your advice has been invaluable in past so I'm back for more.
I'm considering tiling a backsplash with some cool stainless tiles. They are Solistone 9007 Astro. They are not mirror finish stainless, but they certainly aren't matte or brushed either. Closer to the former than the latter. They are a randomish sort of small river rock kind of shape with a flat surface. They have a fair bit of grout between them, the manufacturer says you need to use grout that is acceptable for up to 3/4" joints.
Problem is, I'm afraid that if I use sanded grout I'll scratch the surface of the tile. Manufacturer actually recommends non sanded for the same reason. Is there a recommended grout out there there is non-sanded that can fill joints this wide? Most of the non-sanded grout out there I see is for 1/8 or smaller joints. I'm hoping epoxy grout is not the answer as I have not used it in past and don't really want to try unless I absolutely have to.
Also, any tips for applying grout in an "extra gentle" manner so that I can be as nice as possible to these tiles?
Thanks in advance for your help.
