Applying marble baseboard tile over ceramic

Redoing my bathroom. I have a wainscot of ceramic subway tile that goes to the floor. I am going to be putting a 5" high "baseboard" of solid marble. What do I have to do to make sure it adheres to the subway tile near the floor? Will normal thinset be enough? Is there a special product I need? Go around and break the glaze on any tiles that will be covered? Thanks!

Welcome, Darel.

Several tile installation product manufacturers make a special primer specifically for bonding ceramic tile to other ceramic tile and similar difficult to bond surfaces. You might wanna visit the websites for MAPEI, Laticrete, Custom Building Products, Ardex, etc, to see what they have for the application.

MAPEI's is EcoPrim Grip. Laticrete's is PRIM-N-BOND. Custom's is MBP. Etc.

A photo of your application might be helpful.

My opinion; worth price charged.

I've used the MBP and Eco Prim Grip and both work well.

Do you guys recommend applying the Eco to the ceramic tile (obviously) or both the ceramic and the marble base due to the smooth back? It's definitely not polished, has maybe an 800-grit feel to it. Thoughts?

Stir it well and paint it on the tiles. No need painting it on the marble.
