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.
Schlüter-SCHIENE-STEP-AE (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. Depending on the concentration and duration of exposure, this may result in corrosion (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.
