Schluter®-KERDI-BOARD-V is a vertically grooved substrate and building panel for creating curved elements. If a larger expanse of panels is required, several panels can be connected along the edges with thin-set mortar, Schluter®-KERDI-FIX adhesive, or double-sided adhesive tape.
The KERDI-BOARD-V should be stored flat. In case of outdoor storage, protect the material from direct sunlight and weather exposure.
1. The Schluter®-KERDI-BOARD-V panels feature grooves to allow for quick and easy creation of curved elements.
2. First, cut the panels to the required size. If a larger expanse of panels is required, several panels can be connected along the edges with thin-set mortar, Schluter®-KERDI-FIX adhesive, or the KERDI-BOARD-ZDK double-sided adhesive tape.
3. If the grooved surface points toward the inside, it is recommended that the grooves be filled with thin-set mortar prior to panel installation.
4. Outward-facing grooves should be filled with thin-set mortar prior to or during the tile installation.
5. The tiles can be installed using Schluter-SET, Schluter-ALL-SET, Schluter-FAST-SET, or unmodified thin-set mortar once the bonding materials used to construct the element have cured sufficiently to stabilize the assembly. Choose a notched trowel to match the tile format, and back-butter the tiles, if necessary, to attain full coverage.
Note: See section “Waterproofing” on the use of KERDI-BOARD in bonded waterproofing assemblies.
