Schluter®-KERDI-FIX is a single component, waterproof sealing and bonding compound with a silane-modified polymer base. KERDI-FIX can be used to waterproof pipe and valve protrusions in the Schluter®- Shower System in conjunction with the Schluter®-KERDI membrane and Schluter®- KERDI-BOARD. KERDI-FIX is required to bond the KERDI membrane to the stainless steel Schluter®-KERDI-DRAIN bonding flange and can be used to bond KERDI to building elements such as bathtubs, window elements, and door frames. KERDIBOARD can be adhered with KERDI-FIX in various applications, such as countertops, partitions, and other building elements.
Unopened packages of KERDI-FIX can be stored in a cool location that is above freezing temperatures for up to 18 months. Once the cartridge has been opened, the material has a limited shelf life.
Bonding KERDI membrane
1. The surface where KERDI-FIX is to be applied must be clean and free of grease or other contaminants prior to KERDI-FIX application.
2. Apply KERDI-FIX to the substrate and spread evenly with an appropriate notched trowel.
3. Embed the KERDI in the KERDI-FIX and work the membrane onto the substrate to ensure full coverage and remove air pockets.
4. Remove fresh KERDI-FIX with a cleaning agent (e.g., mineral spirits); after any excess KERDI-FIX has set, it can only be removed with mechanical methods.
