Application and Function
Schluter-DILEX mortar bed joint profiles may also be inserted in saw-cut joints or wider joints; for example, in the case of renovations. The remaining joint between the tile and the profile must be filled completely with grout or epoxy. The side sections of the profiles, made of rigid PVC, protect the edges of the adjacent covering against mechanical stresses caused by industrial traffic. However, where heavy mechanical stresses are anticipated, limitations of the PVC as edge protection must be considered.
Schluter-DILEX-MP adjusts to the thickness of the mortar bed and tile surface by attaching the Schluter-DILEX-MPV extensions. The profile features a central movement zone made of soft chlorinated polyethylene (CPE), which overlaps the recycled rigid PVC side sections by approximately 1/32" (1 mm), thus providing a more aesthetically pleasing exposed surface when compared to DILEX-MOP.
