Schlüter®-INDEC

Application and Function

Schlüter®-INDEC is a high quality finishing profile of anodised aluminum for exterior wall corners and the edges of tile coverings. The visible area of the profile forms a recessed decorative groove.

In addition to the decorative properties of the profile, it effectively protects the edges of tiles from mechanical damage.

Schlüter®-INDEC can also be used as a transition or framing profile for doors and windows that creates a shadow joint at the perimeter. Matching prefabricated parts are available to create simple and elegant connections of Schlüter®-INDEC profiles to exterior corners.


Schlüter®-INDEC

  1. Select Schlüter®-INDEC according to the tile thickness.
  2. Apply tile adhesive to the area where the tile covering will end, using a notched trowel. If Schlüter®-INDEC is to be installed in an exterior wall corner, complete the tiling of one wall, then apply tile adhesive in the corner area of the second wall.
  3. Press the perforated anchoring leg of Schlüter®-INDEC securely into the setting material and align the profile.
  4. Trowel additional setting material over the perforated anchoring leg to ensure full coverage.
  5. Solidly embed the adjoining tiles and align them flush with the top edge of the profile. The tiles must be fully embedded in the area of the profile.
  6. Leave a gap of approx. 1.5 mm. Completely fill the space between the tile and the profile with grout.
  7. Use suitable materials and tools for the sensitive surfaces to avoid scratches or other damage. Residue of mortar and tile adhesive should be removed immediately.

Material

Schlüter®-INDEC is available in the following material varieties:

AE = Anodised aluminium
ACG = Polished chrome anodised aluminium

Material properties and areas of application:
In special cases, the suitability of the selected profile type must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses. The information provided below is intended as a general guideline.

Schlüter®-INDEC (anodised aluminum): The aluminum features an anodised surface layer that retains a uniform appearance during normal use. Visible surfaces should be protected against abrasion. Aluminum is sensitive to alkaline media. Cementitious materials, in conjunction with moisture, become alkaline. Depending on the concentration and duration of exposure, this may result in corrosion (aluminum hydroxide formation). For this reason, remove mortar or grouting material immediately from all visible areas and do not cover freshly installed coverings with foil. In addition, ensure that the profile is solidly embedded in the setting material to prevent water from accumulating in small cavities.

Notes

Schlüter®-INDEC requires no special maintenance or care. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents on the sensitive surfaces. Damaged anodised surfaces can be restored with paint.
