Schlüter®-KERDI-BOARD


APPLICATION AND FUNCTION

Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD is a multifunctional tile substrate for wall areas, which can be used for creating bonded waterproofing assemblies with tile coverings. Additionally, the product has many uses as a structural panel.

It consists of an extruded hard foam panel, with a special reinforcement material on both sides and fleece webbing for effective anchoring in the tile adhesive.

With the available panel thicknesses of 5, 9, 12.5, 19, 28, 38 and 50 mm, Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD covers a broad range of application areas for creating level, waterproof substrates for the installation of ceramic and natural stone tiles. With suitable preparation of the abutting seams and joint areas, the structural panel may be used for officially approved bonded waterproofing assemblies.

Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD is suitable for: creating tile substrates on green masonry, existing substrates of all kinds and stud frames made of wood or metal; creating straight or curved separating walls; concealing wall mounted installations and piping (pipe boxes); creating straight or curved bathtub and shower surrounds; as well as creating work surfaces, vanities, storage shelves or any other bathroom structures. The material is equally suitable for creating level substrates in floor renovation projects e.g. residential bathroom installations designed for foot traffic.

Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD is simply cut to size with a utility knife. The gridlines printed on the surface are helpful for neat and quick installation.

Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD can be fully adhered in wall areas or alternatively attached with dabs of thin-bed mortar or another suitable adhesive or mortar. If necessary, the material may be secured with additional wall anchors. In the case of stud frames made of wood or metal, Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD is attached with screws from the matching hardware system.

Tiles can be installed directly over Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD using the thin-bed method, but other suitable trowel applied coverings or plaster layers are equally possible. Angle and U shaped components (for pipe panelling and grooved Schlüter-KERDI-BOARD panels for example) are available for creating curved features. Schlüter-Systems also offers profiles and attachment hardware for wall connections and finishing edges, as well as matching wall anchors and screws.
