We will go through some of the different finishes and different metals available at Decorative Ceiling Tiles. Here are some of the most common questions.
Aluminum: What is the difference between Mill finish and Clear? Mill finish is a unfinished tile and is meant to be primed and painted as it may oxidize over time. Clear finish is coated with a polyurethane clear coat and does not require a finish and is ready to be installed as is.
Tin Plated Steel: Tin is a thicker gauge metal and is a little heavier than the Aluminum ceiling tiles. Tin however requires to be primed and painted on both sides as it will rust over time if left untreated.
