General product information

What this product does

How to install this product

Note: Please observe the corresponding Schlüter-LIPROTEC installation instructions for installing lighting technology and for planning and positioning cables - especially for the Schlüter-LIPROTEC set versions.

  1. Select LIPROTEC-D according to the covering thickness of the decorative material or the covering thickness of the adjacent tiling.
  2. Note the supply cable for the illuminated version.
  3. Lay the tiles up to the point where Schlüter-LIPROTEC-D is to be installed. Apply sufficient tile adhesive there or apply tile adhesive to the back of LIPROTEC-D and embed the profile over the entire surface. Fill the joint completely with grout. The joint from the profile to the decorative material must not be closed for the illuminated version (joint width min. 3 – max. 12 mm).
  4. With the illuminated version of LIPROTEC-D, the inserted decorative material is reversible.
  5. 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.
  6. Use mitre cuts for corner formations. LIPROTEC-D/V corner connectors are available for the mechanical connection of the mitres.

What this product is made from

Schlüter-LIPROTEC-D is available in the following material versions:


  • AE = anodised aluminium

Material properties and areas of application

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-LIPROTEC-D-AE (anodised aluminium): The aluminium features an anodised finish that retains a uniform appearance during normal use.

Damaged anodised surfaces can be restored with paint.

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.

Note: With the illuminated version, the profiles must be positioned spatially in such a way that direct exposure to water can be excluded.

How to look after this product

Schlüter-LIPROTEC-D requires no special maintenance or care. Do not use abrasive cleaning agents on the sensitive surfaces.

Damaged anodised surfaces can be restored with paint.

All cleaning agents must be free of hydrochloric and hydrofluoric acid.
