Schluter®-DILEX-AHK features a single trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg, which is secured in the mortar bond coat and a cove section that forms the visible surface. The profile’s 3/8" (10 mm) radius makes DILEX-AHK an attractive option for countertop/backsplash transitions, as it 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-AHK prevents surface water penetration and meets the maintenance and hygienic requirements of commercial kitchens, bathrooms, and food-processing plants, or any tiled environment where a sanitary cove base is desired. DILEX-AHK is available in anodized aluminum and color-coated aluminum. Accessories for DILEX-AHK include: inside and outside corners, connectors, and end caps. Outside corners to integrate with Schluter®-QUADEC are available for DILEX-AHK only.

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. 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. 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. For DILEX-AHK, set tile to the integrated joint spacer, which ensures a uniform joint of 1/16" - 1/8" (1.5 - 3 mm).

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

DILEX- AHK requires no special maintenance or care and are resistant to mold and fungi. Clean profile using common household cleaning agents. In the case of anodized aluminum and color-coated aluminum do not use abrasive cleaning agents.
