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-MOP is available in three different heights and features stable serrated sidewalls made of rigid PVC and a central movement zone made of soft PVC. The side sections are made with environmentally friendly recycled PVC and may vary slightly in color. Since the side sections are partially exposed at the surface, DILEX-MOP is intended mainly for industrial use.
