Material Properties and Areas of Application
In special cases, the suitability of a proposed type of material must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses.
Schluter-JOLLY, in chrome-plated brass, is a finishing profile that is especially suited for wall corners and transitions. It is ideal for matching chrome fixtures. Surface areas must be protected against abrasion or scratching.
Schluter-JOLLY, in anodized aluminum, features an anodized layer that retains a uniform appearance during normal use. The surface, however, is susceptible to scratching and wear and may be damaged by grout or setting material. Cementitious materials, in conjunction with moisture, become alkaline. Since aluminum is sensitive to alkaline substances, exposure to the alkali (depending on concentration and duration of exposure) may result in corrosion (aluminum oxide formation). Therefore, it is important to remove mortar or grout residue immediately from visible surfaces. In addition, ensure that the profile is solidly embedded in the setting material and that all cavities are filled to prevent the collection of alkaline water.
Schluter-JOLLY, in color-coated aluminum, is pretreated (chromated) aluminum that is color-coated with a polyurethane powder coat. The coating is color-stable, UV-resistant, and suitable for exterior use. Protect the profile against abrasion or scratching.
Schluter-JOLLY, in PVC, is manufactured using pre-colored, rigid PVC that resists bending and scratching. The material is UV-resistant, though not permanently colorstable, in exterior applications. The profile is not suited for corners or transitions subject to heavy mechanical stresses; for example, at stair edges or floor transitions.
Refer to the various finishes and materials for Schluter-SCHIENE, which can be used in similar applications to the Schluter-JOLLY.
