Material Properties and Areas of Application:

Schlüter®-QUADEC is available in a wide range of different materials and finishes. In certain applications, the suitability of the profile must be verified based on the anticipated chemical and mechanical stresses. The information provided below is intended as a general guideline. Schlüter®-QUADEC-MC (brass with chrome finish) is suitable for wall corners and the edges of tile coverings, e.g. to match chrome plated fittings in bathrooms. Visible surfaces should be protected against abrasion. Mortar and grouting material should be removed immediately.

Schlüter®-QUADEC-E is made of roll formed stainless steel V2A (material no. 1.4301) or V4A (material no. 1.4404). Schlüter®-QUADEC-E is highly durable and especially suited for application areas that must be resistant to chemicals and acids, such as food industry facilities, breweries, dairies, industrial kitchens and hospitals, as well as residential areas. 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®-QUADEC-AE / -ACG / -ACGB / -AEX / -AMX / -ATX / -AQGX / -AT / -ATG / -ATGB (anodised aluminium): The aluminium features an anodised surface layer that retains a uniform appearance during normal use. Visible surfaces should be protected against abrasion. Aluminium is sensitive to alkaline. 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 mortar or grouting material immediately from all visible areas and do not remove the protective plastic cover from the profile until completely clean. In addition, ensure that the profile is solidly embedded in the setting material to prevent water from accumulating in small cavities.

Schlüter®-QUADEC-AC (colour coated aluminium): The aluminium is pretreated (chrome plated) and powder coated with a polyurethane covering. The coating is colour stable, as well as UV and weather resistant. Visible edges should be protected against abrasion.

Schlüter®-QUADEC-TS (tuscan textured aluminium): The aluminum is coated with metal dust, colour coated, and sealed. The coating is colour stable. Visible edges should be protected against abrasion. The surfaces of Schlüter®-QUADEC-TS profiles have a natural appearance. Variations in colour and texture are intentional.

Schlüter®-QUADEC-PQ (coloured PVC) are made of solidly coloured rigid PVC and are resistant to bending or scratching. The material is UV resistant, but not permanently colourfast in outdoor areas. The profile is not suitable for the corners and edges of coverings that are exposed to heavy mechanical stresses, e.g. at stair nosings or flooring edges.

Due to different manufacturing technologies, slight colour discrepancies between the profiles and the corners cannot be completely ruled out.
