E = Stainless steel

  • V2A, material no. 1.4301 = AISI 304
  • V4A material no. 1.4404 = AISI 316L

A = Aluminium
The movement zone consists of soft thermoplastic rubber with grip bars made of a rigid 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-EKSBT with stainless steel support profiles made of material no. 1.4301 (V2A) or 1.4404 (V4A) are especially suitable for applications that require, in addition to high mechanical durability, resistance to chemical stresses from sources such as acidic or alkaline media or cleaning agents. The use of V4A is recommended if consistent exposure is expected, for example in the case of swimming pools (fresh water). Stainless steel is not resistant to all chemical stresses, and may be affected by hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid or certain chlorine 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 or 1.4404.

Schlüter®-DILEX-AKSBT, with aluminium anchoring legs, must be tested to verify its suitability if chemical stresses are anticipated. 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. The profile must be solidly bedded in the setting material.

Schlüter®-DILEX-KSBT 30 / VE is a Ushaped profile insert of brushed stainless steel. It is used to enhance optical appeal and reinforces the soft core of the profiles DILEX-KSBT 30. The movement zone of all Schlüter®-DILEX-KSBT profile types consists of highly flexible thermoplastic rubber. This material is highly resistant to chemicals and 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. Thermoplastic elastomers can be connected by welding if profiles are joined to produce longer lengths.
