General product information

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

  1. Schlüter-DILEX-EP on the substrate and adjust according to height and alignment (congruent to the surface movement joint later installed in the tile).
  2. If the height needs adjustment, place a thin layer of mortar or other suitable base underneath.
  3. 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.

How to look after this product

Schlüter-DILEX-EP is resistant to fungi and bacteria and requires no special maintenance or care.
