Schluter®-RONDEC-DB, an anodized aluminum, decorative profile for wall and skirting edges, protects the surface covering from mechanical or impact stresses. The profile features a trapezoid perforated anchoring leg that is secured in the mortar bond coat beneath the tile and a pronounced visible surface that establishes a clean line along tile edges and allows for decorative design.

RONDEC-DB can also be used as a finishing profile within wall surfaces; for example, where other covering materials such as plaster, wallpaper, or tiles are to be joined.

The Schluter®-RONDEC-DB profile requires no special maintenance or care and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean profiles periodically using neutral cleaning agents.

In the case of anodized aluminum do not use abrasive cleaning agents.

1. RONDEC-DB can be used with tiles 1/4" - 1/2" (6 -12.5 mm).

2. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar to the area where profile is to be placed. If the RONDEC-DB profile is to be used as edging for an outside wall corner, finish tiling one wall first; then trowel thin-set mortar over the corner area of the second wall.

3. Press the perforated anchoring leg of the profile into the mortar and align.

4. Trowel additional thin-set mortar over the perforated anchoring leg to ensure full coverage and support of the tile edges.

5. Solidly embed the tiles. Note: RONDEC-DB is intended to be higher than the tiled surface.

6. Set the tile, leaving a space for grout of approximately 1/16" – 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm).

7. Fill the joint completely with grout or setting material.

8. Work with materials and tools that will not scratch or damage sensitive surfaces. Setting materials must be removed immediately, especially from aluminum.
