Schlüter-FINEC-E Finishing profile made of stainless steel
Schlüter-FINEC-E is a decorative ﬁnishing proﬁle made of stainless steel for the external edges of tile coverings, mosaics or rendered surfaces. The profile protects the covering edges from mechanical damage which forms an elegant, slim corner detail. FINEC-E made of stainless steel is also suitable for use in staircases as a slim edge protection for tiles and rendered surface coatings.
Matching corner sets are also available for all our FINEC stainless steel profiles, making it easy to create decorative and neat corner designs.
General product information
How to install this product
- Select Schlüter-FINEC-E in accordance with the tile thickness.
- Press the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg of the profile firmly into the adhesive and align it (in the case of adjoining plaster or render place the anchoring leg on a suitable adhesive area first).
- Trowel additional tile adhesive over the trapezoid perforated anchoring leg to ensure full coverage.
Corner formation with FINEC-AE/-TS/-AC/-E:
The adjoining tiles in the area of the profile must be chamfered by 45°.
When creating 3 way external corners, always start by embedding the pre-fabricated parts of the corner set in the tile adhesive. The following work sequence must be observed:
- left corner piece (1 trapezoid perforation),
- right corner piece (2 trapezoid perforations),
- lower corner piece (3 trapezoid perforations),
- cut profiles to size and set them in place.
What this product is made from
The profile is available in the following finishes:
- E = stainless steel V2A, material no. 1.4301 = AISI 304
Material properties and areas of application
Schlüter-FINEC is available in a wide variety of materials and finishes. In applications exposed to chemical or mechanical stresses, the profile’s suitability must be verified. The information provided below is intended as a general guideline.
Schlüter-FINEC-E is made of roll formed V2A stainless steel (material no. 1.4301). It is particularly well suited for applications that, in addition to heavy mechanical stresses, require resistance to chemicals such as acidic or alkaline media and detergents. Even stainless steel is not resistant to all chemical stresses. Substances such as hydrochloric or hydrofluoric acid or certain chloride and brine concentrations may cause damage. In certain cases, this also applies to seawater pools. Special anticipated stresses should therefore be verified in advance.
Maintenance & Care
How to look after this product
Schlüter-FINEC-E requires no special maintenance or care. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents on the sensitive surfaces.
The surfaces of stainless steel profiles can be polished with commercial chrome-polishing products. 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.
Avoid contact with other metals, such as regular steel, to prevent corrosion. This also includes installation tools such as trowels or steel wool, e.g. for the removal of mortar residue. We recommend the use of the stainless steel cleaning polish Schlüter-CLEAN-CP.
