Schlüter-QUADEC-AC  Finishing profile made of colour coated aluminium

Schlüter-QUADEC-AC is a high-quality colour coated aluminium finishing profile for external corners and the edges of tiled coverings. The visible area of the profile forms a right angled external corner. The joint spacer creates a uniform joint cavity with the tile.

The profiles are available in different colours to coordinate with tile and grout, fixtures and fittings or to create interesting accents in decorative design. The rich texture of the matte finishes brilliant white (MBW) and graphite black (MGS) offers a timelessly elegant appearance that perfectly complements classic tiles and stylish new designs with textured finishes. In addition to their decorative effect, QUADEC-AC profiles also offer reliable edge protection against mechanical impact for the tiles in the edge area.

Matching corner pieces and connectors are available to create simple and elegant connections for QUADEC-AC profiles to internal and external corners.

General product information

How to install this product

  1. Select Schlüter-QUADEC-AC according to tile thickness.
  2. Apply tile adhesive to the area where the tile covering will end, using a notched trowel. If QUADEC-AC is to be installed in an exterior wall corner, complete the tiling of one wall, then apply tile adhesive in the corner area of the second wall.
  3. Press the perforated anchoring leg of QUADEC-AC firmly into the adhesive and align it.
  4. Trowel additional adhesive over the perforated anchoring leg to ensure full coverage and fill the profile chamber with tile adhesive.
  5. Solidly embed adjacent tiles and adjust flush with the profile’s upper edge. Full coverage must be obtained between the tile and the profile’s anchoring leg.
  6. The tile is set to the lateral joint spacer, which creates an evenly spaced joint of 1.5 mm. Fill the joint completely with grout.
  7. Use suitable materials and tools for the sensitive surfaces to avoid scratches or other damage. Setting materials must be removed immediately, especially on aluminium.
  8. Matching preformed inside and outside corner pieces are available.
