Schluter®-DILEX-EHK features trapezoid-perforated anchoring legs, made of stainless steel, which are secured in the mortar bond coat, and a stainless steel cove section that forms the visible surface. The profile’s 23/32" (18.5 mm) radius prevents the accumulation of dirt and makes cleaning simple. The profile separates tile fields that meet at inside corners where limited movement is expected.

DILEX-EHK requires no special maintenance or care and are resistant to mold and fungi. Clean profile using common household cleaning agents. Stainless steel surfaces exposed to the environment or aggressive substances should be cleaned periodically using a mild household cleaner. Regular cleaning maintains the neat appearance of stainless steel and reduces the risk of corrosion. All cleaning agents must be free of hydrochloric acid, hydrofluoric acid, and chlorides. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent.

1. Select profile according to tile thickness and format.

2. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar over the area where the trapezoid-perforated anchoring legs will be placed.

3. Press the perforated anchoring leg(s) of the profile into the mortar.

Note: Install inside and outside corners, connectors, and end caps prior to setting tile. DILEX-EHK accessories are applied using a permanently elastic, waterproof adhesive (e.g., KERDI-FIX or silicone). Prior to application, any contact-inhibiting substances (e.g., grease, etc.) must be removed. The connectors should overlap the profiles by at least 3/8" (10 mm).

4. Trowel additional thin-set mortar where the tiles are to be installed.

5. Solidly embed the tiles, ensuring full coverage and support of the tile edges, and align flush with the top of the profile, leaving a joint of approximately 1/16" – 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm) between the tile and the profile.

6. Fill the joints completely with grout or setting material.
