Schluter®-DILEX-HK features trapezoid-perforated anchoring legs, made of recycled rigid PVC, which are secured in the mortar bond coat. The profile separates tile fields that meet at inside corners and accommodates movement via the soft chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) cove-shaped movement zone that forms the visible surface. DILEX-HK provides an 11/16" (18 mm) radius to prevent the accumulation of dirt and to make cleaning simple. DILEX-HK prevents surface water penetration and meets the maintenance and hygienic requirements of commercial kitchens, bathrooms, food-processing plants, or any tiled environment where a sanitary cove base is desired. It accommodates wall and floor tiles of dissimilar thicknesses and features a tile pocket that hides cut tile edges. DILEX-HK integrates with DILEX-HKW where cove trim for inside wall corners is desired. In addition, DILEX-HK prevents sound bridges, making it ideal for floor/wall transitions in sound-rated floors. Accessories for the DILEX-HK include: inside and outside corners, connectors, and end caps.

DILEX-HK requires no special maintenance or care and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean profile using common household cleaning agents.

1. Select profile according to tile thickness and format.

Note: For DILEX-HK, profile height, “U”, must allow insertion of the tile into the tile pocket; for example, select “U 12” for a tile thickness between approx. 3/8" (10 mm) and 7/16" (11 mm).

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. The use of thin-set mortar or similar may be required to achieve a proper fit.

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

5. Insert the floor tile into the tile pocket.

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