  • AE = Anodised aluminium
  • AEEB = Stainless steel effect anodised aluminium
  • AC = Colour coated aluminium

Material properties and areas of application:

In special cases, 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®-DESIGNBASE-CQ-AE/-AEEB (anodised aluminium): The aluminium features an anodised finish that retains a uniform appearance during normal use. Damaged anodised surfaces can be restored with paint. Visible surfaces should be protected against abrasion. Aluminium 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, mortar or grouting material must be removed immediately from all visible areas and freshly installed coverings should not be covered with polythene type foil protection.

Schlüter®-DESIGNBASE-CQ-AC (colour- coated aluminium): The aluminium is pre-treated (chrome-plated) and powder- coated with a polyurethane covering. The coating is colour-stable as well as UVand weather-resistant. Visible edges should be protected against abrasion.
