Vikon metal tiles are The Original Individual Metal Tiles, having been on the market since 1926. Years of painstaking research have made them the best metal tiles that you can specify and install. The Vikon product catalog from 1960 describes their steel tile in this way: "Vikon metal tiles are individual tiles stamped from sheets of aluminum, mild steel, stainless steel, or copper. Enameled tiles are sprayed with synthetic resin enamel and precision-baked in a gas-fired convection oven. Porcelain-on-aluminum tiles are sprayed with a du Pont vitreous porcelain and fired in a scientifically controlled electric oven at 1,000 F. The baking and firing provide hard, durable surfaces plus a high gloss that is remarkably resistant to acids and alkalies. Only stainless steel is uncoated. All tiles, including those coated with porcelain, can be bent or cut for fitting. Steel tile are stamped from electro-zinc-plated, bonderized, 28-gauge (0.015")steel and then completely enveloped by an epon-resin-base, zinc-chromate coating which makes the best possible surface for enameling and provides maximum resistance to corrosion."
