General product information

How to install this product

  1. Select Schlüter-DECO-SGC according to the tile thickness.
  2. Using a notched trowel, apply tile adhesive to the area where the tile covering will end.
  3. Press the trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg of DECO-SGC firmly into the adhesive and align it.
  4. Trowel additional tile adhesive over the perforated anchoring leg to ensure full coverage.
  5. Firmly press the adjoining tiles into place and align them in such a way that they are flush with the upper profile edge. The tiles must be fully embedded in the area of the profile.
  6. Leave a joint of approx. 1.5 mm between the tile and the profile. Completely fill the space between the tile and the profile with grout.
  7. Use suitable materials and tools for the sensitive surfaces to avoid scratches or other damage. Residue of mortar and tile adhesive should be removed immediately.
  8. Glass elements may be inserted into DECO-SGC after the final installation.

Important: The glass may not be in direct contact with the profile. Suitable spacers should be used. Seal the joints with silicone.

What this product is made from

Schlüter-DECO-SGC is available in the following material versions:

  • AE = anodised aluminium

Material properties and areas of application

In special cases, the suitability of the material type must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses. The information provided below is intended as a general guideline.

Anodised aluminium:The aluminium features an anodised finish that retains a uniform appearance during normal use. Surface areas must be protected against abrasion or scratching. Aluminium is sensitive to alkaline media. Cementitious materials, in conjunction with moisture, become alkaline, which may result in corrosion depending on the concentration and length of exposure (aluminium hydroxide formation).

For this reason, remove adhesive or grouting material immediately from all visible areas and do not cover freshly installed coverings with foil. In addition, ensure that the profile is solidly embedded in the setting material to prevent water from accumulating in small cavities.

How to look after this product

Schlüter-DECO-SG requires no special maintenance or care. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents on the sensitive surfaces. Damaged anodised surfaces can be restored with paint.
