Schluter®-DILEX-MOP

Schluter®-DILEX-MOP is a screed joint profile with rigid PVC side sections that protect tile edges and a soft PVC movement zone that separates individual fields in the tile assembly and forms the visible surface.

  • Designed to allow movement and reduce stress in large, tiled areas
  • Eliminates the need for caulking
  • Prevents cracking and delamination of tiles
  • Provides movement joints in tile installations that are set in a mortar bed
  • Ideal for ceramic tile, natural stone, pavers, and agglomerate tile

Schluter®-DILEX screed joint profiles are designed to provide movement joints in tile installations that are set in a mortar bed (e.g., ceramic tile, natural stone, pavers, and agglomerate tile). These profile systems are placed to produce individual fields in the assembly and feature flexible central zones to accommodate movement. DILEX mortar bed joint profiles may also be inserted in saw-cut joints or wider joints; for example, in the case of renovations. The remaining joint between the tile and the profile must be filled completely with grout or epoxy. The side sections of the profiles, made of rigid PVC, protect the edges of the adjacent covering against mechanical stresses caused by industrial traffic. However, where heavy mechanical stresses are anticipated, limitations of the PVC as edge protection must be considered.

Schluter®-DILEX-MOP is available in three different heights and features stable serrated sidewalls made of rigid PVC and a central movement zone made of soft PVC. The side sections are made with environmentally friendly recycled PVC and may vary slightly in color. Since the side sections are partially exposed at the surface, DILEX-MOP is intended mainly for industrial use.

1. Select the profile height according to the height of the assembly.

2. Set the profile flush against the edge area of an already completed field. The profile must be completely embedded laterally.

3. Install tiles for the adjacent field flush to the profile surface. The profile must be completely embedded laterally.

4. Fill the remaining joint between the profile and the covering completely with grout or setting material.

Installation note on joint repair: Prepare the joint’s width and depth appropriately and insert profile into joint. Fill joint space between profile and covering completely with grout, epoxy, or thin-set mortar.

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