Schlüter®-DILEX-HKS/-EHK | Material | Schlüter-Systems



The profiles are available in the following material versions:
E = stainless steel 
       V2A material no. 1.4301 = AISI 304     
       V4A material no. 1.4404 = AISO 316L         
EB = brushed stainless steel (DILEX-EHK only)

They are made of stainless steel produced in a rollforming process and feature trapezoid perforations on the anchoring legs.
The movement zone of Schlüter®-DILEXHKS consists of an 11 mm wide, highly flexible synthetic rubber insert.

Material properties and areas of application:

In special cases, the suitability of the intended profile types must be verified based on the anticipated chemical and mechanical stresses. The information provided below is intended as a general guideline. The support profiles Schlüter®-DILEX-HKS and Schlüter®-DILEX-EHK are made of stainless steel V2A (material no. 1.4301 = AISI 304) or V4A (material no. 1.4404 = AISI 316L) and are particularly well suited for applications that, in addition to heavy mechanical stresses, require resistance to chemicals such as acidic or alkaline media or detergents.

The use of V4A is recommended if consistent exposure is expected, for example in the case of swimming pools (fresh water). Even stainless steel is not resistant to all chemicalstresses and may be affected by hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid or certain chloride and brine concentrations. Consideration of anticipated chemical stresses should therefore be verified in advance. Depending on the anticipated chemical stresses, customers can choose between the alloy materials 1.4301 (V2A) or 1.4404 (V4A). The flexible movement zone of Schlüter®- DILEX-HKS is made of soft synthetic rubber. This rubber is resistant to most chemicals encountered in tiled or natural stone environments. It is also resistant to fungi and bacteria. The insert is resistant to temperatures ranging from -60 °C to 100 °C. The synthetic rubber can be heat bonded to extend the profile length.
