Schluter®-FINEC is a finishing and edge protection profile for the outside corners of tiled surfaces. It features a trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg that is secured in the mortar bond coat beneath the tile and provides a slim, elegant corner.

The profile is available in stainless steel, anodized aluminum, and textured color-coated aluminum. FINEC, in stainless steel, is particularly resistant to wear when used as edge protection. It may also be used as a stair nosing profile.

1. Select the profile according to tile thickness and format.

2. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar to the area where the profile is to be placed. If the FINEC 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. Bevel tiles adjacent to the profile by 45°. Solidly embed the tiles so that the tiled surface is flush with the top of the profile; the profile should not be higher than the tiled surface, but rather up to approx. 1/32" (1 mm) lower.

5a. If the FINEC profiles, in aluminum, are used to create a 3 way external corner, into which the two upper profiles were fitted at an angle of 45°, cut the adjoining lower profile to size. The trapezoid-perforated anchor¬ing leg, including the joint spacer, must be cut off straight to the visible area by a minimum dimension x, depending on the profile length; see the AE illustration below.

5b. If the FINEC profiles, in stainless steel, are used to create a 3 way external corner, into which the two upper profiles were fitted at an angle of 45°, cut the adjoining lower profile to size. In this case, the trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg must be cut off by a minimum dimension x, depending on the profile length, including the visible area has to be chamfered at a 45° angle; see the E illustration below.

6. Set the tiles to the integrated joint spacer, which ensures a uniform joint of 1/16" to 1/8" (1.5 – 3 mm). With stainless steel, leave a space of approximately 1/16" - 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm) between the profile and the tile.

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.

The Schluter®-FINEC profile requires no special maintenance or care and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean profiles using common household cleaning agents.

Stainless steel surfaces exposed to the environment or aggressive substances should be cleaned periodically using a mild household cleaner. Regular cleaning maintains the neat appearance of stainless steel and reduces the risk of corrosion. All cleaning agents must be free of hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid and chlorides. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent.

Oxidation films on aluminum may be removed with a common polishing agent, but will form again.

In the case of anodized aluminum and textured color-coated aluminum, do not use abrasive cleaning agents.
