A = Aluminium
The movement zone consists of highly flexible thermoplastic rubber with inserts made of a harder material.

Material properties and areas of application

The suitability of a proposed type of profile must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical and/or other stresses. Schlüter®-DILEX-EKSN/-EKSB/-EKSA with stainless steel support profiles made of material no. 1.4301 (V2A) or 1.4404 (V4A) are especially suitable for applications which, in addition to high mechanical durability, require resistance to chemical stresses from sources such as acidic or alkaline media, cleaning detergents, or de-icing salt. 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 chemical stresses, and may be affected by hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid or certain chloride and brine concentrations. Special anticipated 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.

Schlüter®-DILEX-AKSN/-AKSA with lateral anchoring leg profiles of aluminium are sensitive to alkaline media. Cementitious materials, in conjunction with moisture become alkaline. Since aluminium is sensitive to alkaline substances exposure to the alkali (depending on the concentration and duration of exposure) may result in corrosion (aluminium hydroxide formation). For this reason, remove mortar or grouting material immediately from all visible areas and do not cover freshly installed coverings with foil. It must be ensured that the profile is solidly embedded in the setting material to prevent alkaline water from accumulating in small cavities. The movement zones of all Schlüter®-DILEX-KS and -KSA profile types consist of highly flexible thermoplastic rubber. This material is UV-resistant, suitable for outdoor use, and resistant to the chemical stresses typically associated with tile coverings and has been specially treated to resist fungi and bacteria.

The insert is resistant to temperatures ranging from -60 °C to +100 °C. The thermoplastic elastomer can be heat bonded to extend the profile length.

The tile inserts Schlüter®-DILEX-KS/K are available in all colours for cross joints created with the movement profiles Schlüter®- DILEX-KS.
