Schlüter®-DILEX-EP | Schlüter-Systems


Application and Function

Schlüter®-DILEX-EP is a prefabricated movement profile for the installation of bonded screeds or screeds over a separating layer (floating screeds).

The side sections are made of recycled rigid PVC with a top and bottom connection made of soft CPE. The profile is positioned in such a way that it will be in direct alignment with the surface movement joint placed later during tile installation. The top edge of the Schlüter®-DILEX-EP serves as an ideal screeding guide for the screed surface. Furthermore, the profile is suited for use in self-levelling screeds.

Schlüter®-DILEX-EP’s side flanges anchor the profile to the screed. The soft movement zone absorbs compressive, tensile, and shear stresses.



  1. Place Schlüter®-DILEX-EP on the substrate and adjust according to height and alignment (congruent to the surface movement joint later installed in the tile.)
  2. If the height needs adjustment, place a thin layer of mortar or other suitable base underneath.
  3. Secure profile with mortar to prevent movement. The top edge of the profile also serves as a screeding guide for the screed surface.



Schlüter®-DILEX-EP consists of side sections made of recycled rigid PVC with a top and bottom connection made of soft CPE acting as a movement zone.

Material properties and areas of application:

The profile is resistant to most chemicals encountered in tiled environments.
In special cases, the suitability of a proposed type of material must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/ or other stresses. The profile’s CPE movement zones are UV-resistant and contain no softeners.

 Schlüter®-DILEX-EP is installed as a movement joint in screeds and self-levelling screeds. The profile separates individual covering fields and equalizes occurring compressive, tensile, and shear stresses in the soft CPE movement zone.



Schlüter®-DILEX-EP is resistant to fungi and bacteria and requires no special maintenance.
