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

Anodised aluminium: The aluminium features an anodised finish that retains a uniform appearance during normal use. 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 (aluminium hydroxide formation).

For this reason, remove adhesive and grout material immediately from all visible areas and do not cover freshly installed coverings with a protective film. The profile has to be solidly embedded in the tile adhesive to prevent water from accumulating in small cavities.

Stainless steel can withstand high mechanical stress and is highly resistant against chemicals. Even stainless steel of quality 1.4404 is not resistant to all chemical stresses. Substances such as hydrochloric or hydrofluoric acid or certain chloride and brine concentrations may cause damage. Special anticipated stresses should therefore always be verified in advance.

Uncut LED modules have IP67 protection. Shortened LED modules can reach compliance with IP67 if they are correctly sealed with the supplied end caps.

The fluorinated LED strips made of platinum- cured silicone are dirt-repellent and have a Shore hardness of 60.
