Material properties and areas of application

In special cases, the suitability of a proposed type of profile must be verified, based on anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses.

Schlüter®-RENO-MU are profiles made of brass. Minor manufacturing flaws are unavoidable on their untreated surfaces. They are suitable for absorbing high mechanical stresses. Brass is resistant to virtually all chemicals used in conjunction with tile coverings.

When exposed to air, an oxidised layer will form on the exposed visible area of the brass profiles, which leads to a darkening of the finish. This is a natural occurrence with brass and should be expected, domestic brass cleaners can be used to bring back to a shiny brass finish. Exposure to moisture or aggressive substances may result in heavy oxidation and staining at the profile surface.

Schlüter®-RENO-AU are profiles made of aluminium. Minor manufacturing flaws are also unavoidable on their untreated surfaces. The suitability of the profiles should be reviewed based on the anticipated chemical stresses. Aluminium is sensitive to alkaline. Cementitious materials, in conjunction with moisture, become alkaline, which may result in corrosion depending on the concentration and length of exposure (aluminium hydroxide formation). Any adhesive, mortar or grout must therefore be removed from visual areas immediately. The profile must be solidly embedded in the setting material to prevent alkaline water from accumulating in small cavities. In case of more demanding visual requirements, Schlüter® -RENO-AEU or –EBU with post-treated, high-quality finishes are available.

Schlüter®-RENO-AEU/-RAMP made of anodised aluminium feature an anodised finish that retains a uniform appearance during normal use. The finish may be damaged by aggressive substances or abrasive stresses. Since the effect of tile adhesive, mortar or grout may affect the finish, all contaminations must be removed immediately. Otherwise, the same description as for aluminium applies.

Schlüter®-RENO-EU/ -EBU are made of stainless steel 1.4301 (V2A) and are particularly well suited for applications that, in addition to high mechanical stresses, require resistance to chemicals such as acidic or alkaline cleaning agents. Even stainless steel is not resistant to all chemical stresses. Substances such as hydrochloric or hydrofluoric acid or certain chloride and brine concentrations may cause damage. In certain cases, that also applies to seawater pools. Special anticipated stresses should therefore be verified in advance.
