Schluter®-DILEX-KSN

Schluter®-DILEX-KSN is a heavy-duty surface joint profile with stainless steel or aluminum anchoring legs that protect tile edges. It features a 7/16” (11 mm)-wide, soft thermoplastic rubber movement zone that separates individual fields in the tile covering 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
  • Maintenance-free
  • Offers secure edge protection for surfaces exposed to heavy-duty commercial traffic, such as warehouses, production facilities, and shopping malls

Schluter®-DILEX-KSN features trapezoid-perforated anchoring legs, made of stainless steel or aluminum, which are secured in the mortar bond coat and provide edge protection for adjacent tiles. The profile separates individual fields in the tile covering and accommodates movement via the 7/16" (11 mm)-wide, soft thermoplastic rubber movement zone, which also forms the visible surface. The thermoplastic rubber movement zone can be replaced if damaged.

DILEX-KSN, with stainless steel anchoring legs, offers secure edge protection for surfaces exposed to heavy-duty commercial traffic (e.g., warehouses, production facilities, or shopping malls).

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

2. Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar over the area where the profile is to be placed. The profile must align directly with movement joints in the substrate below.

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

4. Trowel additional thin-set mortar over the perforated anchoring legs 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. A joint of approximately 1/16" - 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm) should be left between the tile and the profile.

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

DILEX-KSN requires no special maintenance or care and is 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.

Oxidation films on aluminum can be removed by using a conventional polishing agent, but will form again.

The thermoplastic rubber inserts in DILEX-KSN are replaceable.
