Schluter®-DECO-SG is an anodized aluminum, decorative profile featuring a 1/2" (12.5 mm) or 9/16" (15 mm)-wide channel that provides a shadow gap between tile courses or other wall covering. The profile may also be used as a support channel for glass walls, up to a thickness of 3/8" (10 mm) or 1/2" (12.5 mm). DECO-SG features a trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg that is secured in the bond coat beneath the tile.

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 and hydrofluoric acid and chlorides. Stainless steel surfaces develop a sheen when treated with a chrome-polishing agent.

1. Select the profile according to tile thickness and format.

2. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar to the area where profile is to be placed.

3. Press the perforated anchoring leg of the profile into the mortar and align.

4. Trowel additional thin-set mortar over the perforated anchoring leg to ensure full coverage and support of the tile edges.

5. Solidly embed the tiles so that the tiled surface is flush with the top of the profile; the profile should not be higher than the tiled surface, but rather up to approx. 1/32" (1 mm) lower.

6. Set the tile, leaving a space for grout of approximately 1/16" – 1/8" (1.5 – 3 mm).

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

8. Work with materials and tools that will not scratch or damage sensitive surfaces. Setting materials must be removed immediately, especially from aluminum.
