Schluter-KERDI is waterproof and resistant to most chemicals commonly encountered in tiled environments. It is resistant to aging and will not rot. Schluter-KERDI is highly resistant to saline solutions, acid and alkaline solutions, many organic solvents, alcohols, and oils. Information regarding its resistance to specific substances can be provided if concentration, temperature, and duration of exposure are known. For acid-resistant coverings, use an epoxy adhesive to set and grout the tile.
Schluter-KERDI is suitable for wall and floor surfaces where protection against the penetration of moisture or other harmful substances is necessary. Surfaces include showers, tub surrounds, and areas surrounding swimming pools. Industrial applications include the food industry, breweries, and dairies. Before placing the Schluter-KERDI, verify that the substrate is clean, even, load bearing, and free from moisture. Surfaces that inhibit proper adhesion must be removed or appropriately treated.
Schluter-KERDI meets the American National Standard for Load Bearing, Bonded, Waterproof Membranes for Thin-Set Ceramic Tile and Dimension Stone Installations (ANSI A118.10) and is listed by cUPC.
