Best asking the manufacturer such as Schluter - http://www.schluter.co.uk/uncoupling-membranes.aspx

I have seen this used were tiling on a mix of floor substrates.

Ask their technical team.

I think you would be asking for trouble tiling on the steel, there are mesh underlays to help prevent cracking but it may not be enough; you would be better off with a specialist to advise. There are a few specific tiling forums it may be worth asking on one of them

Floor tile onto a steel

Hi
We have a former that has been tiled.  The former meets a steel beam.  We just want to tile over the steel beam and then install vinyl flooring for the rest of the room.  Is it possible to tile floor tiles onto a steel?  If so how should this be done and what sort of adhesive should be used?
Thanks
Also - from a different thread - Should we apply silicone to the former?
