What this product does
Schlüter-DILEX-EP is a pre-fabricated movement profile for the installation of bonded screeds or screeds over a separating layer (floating screeds).
The side sections are made of recycled rigid PVC with a top and bottom connection made of soft CPE. The profile is positioned in such a way that it will be in direct alignment with the surface movement joint placed later during tile installation. The top edge of DILEX-EP serves as an ideal screeding guide for the screed surface. Furthermore, the profile is suited for use in self-levelling screeds.
The side flanges of DILEX-EP anchor the profile to the screed. The soft movement zone absorbs compressive, tensile, and shear stresses.
How to install this product
- Schlüter-DILEX-EP on the substrate and adjust according to height and alignment (congruent to the surface movement joint later installed in the tile).
- If the height needs adjustment, place a thin layer of mortar or other suitable base underneath.
- Secure profile with mortar to prevent movement. The top edge of the profile also serves as a screeding guide for the screed surface.
What this product is made from
Schlüter-DILEX-EP consists of side sections made of recycled rigid PVC with a top and bottom connection made of soft CPE acting as a movement zone.
Material properties and areas of application
The profile is resistant to most chemicals encountered in tiled environments.
In special cases, the suitability of a selected material type must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses. The CPE movement zones of the profile are UV resistant and free of plasticisers.
DILEX-EP is installed as a movement joint in screeds and flowing screeds. The profile separates individual covering fields and equalizes occurring compressive, tensile, and shear stresses in the soft CPE movement zone.
Maintenance & Care
How to look after this product
Schlüter-DILEX-EP is resistant to fungi and bacteria and requires no special maintenance or care.
