Schlüter-RONDEC-STEP is made of aluminium and is available in a variety of anodised surface finishing options.
- AE = anodised aluminium
- ACGB = brushed chrome anodised aluminium
Material properties and areas of application
RONDEC-STEP must be tested to verify its suitability if chemical exposure is expected. 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.
Solidly embed the profile in the setting material to prevent alkaline water from accumulating in small cavities.
RONDEC-STEP profiles have an anodised surface layer that retains a uniform appearance during normal use. Protect the surface from abrasion or scratching.
