Schlüter®-DILEX-KSBT | Installation | Schlüter-Systems



  1.  Select Schlüter®-DILEX-KSBT in accordance with tile thickness.
  2. Using a notched trowel, apply tile adhesive to the area where the profile will be placed.
  3. Press the trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg of Schlüter®-DILEX-KSBT firmly into the adhesive and align it. The profile must align directly with expansion and movement joints in the substrate below.
  4. Trowel tile adhesive over the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg to ensure full coverage. Trowel tile adhesive against the vertical anchoring legs at an angle.
  5. Firmly press the adjoining tiles into place and align them in such a way that the upper profile edge is flush with the tile (profile should not protrude over the surface of the covering; preferably, it should be approx. 1 mm below the top level of the covering). The tiles must be fully embedded in the area of the profile. Always adjoin the uncut tile edge to the profile.
  6. Leave a 2-mm joint to the profile, and completely fill the joint between the profile and the tile with mortar.
  7. For installation of the profile insert Schlüter®-DILEX-KSBT 30 / VE into the profile Schlüter®-DILEX-KSBT 30, cut the grooves of the soft zone with a utility knife. Apply the installation adhesive Schlüter®KERDI-FIX to the back of the profile insert and press it into the groove.
  8. For cross joints, trim the profiles in such a way that the trapezoid perforated anchoring legs don’t overlap during installation.
