The Schlüter®-RONDEC-DB decor profile is ideally suited for plinth ends, external wall corners, ram protection and optical borders on tile coverings. The outer surface of the profile is designed to protrude. In this way, the tile profile forms an appealing finish to tile edges. This finishing profile ensures an attractive design. The decorative profile also has functional properties. In this way, the tile profile ensures that tiles in the edge area are reliably protected from mechanical damage. A Schlüter®-RONDEC-DB decor profile can be used to create closures in the wall area, such as base or corner covers. Wallpaper, plaster, tiles or covering materials can be attached to these covers.
Processing of the decor profiles
The Schlüter®-RONDEC-DB decor profile can be used for tile thicknesses of 6 to 12 mm. Deer tile adhesive should be applied with a notched trowel in the area where you want to limit the tile surface. If the Schlüter®-RONDEC-DB decor profile is used on outside wall corners, it is important to finish tiling one wall first. The tile adhesive is then applied in the corner area of the second wall. The Schlüter®-RONDEC-DB end profile must be pressed into the adhesive bed with the perforated fastening leg and aligned. The fastening leg should be completely filled with tile adhesive. Then the tiles are pressed in firmly and aligned. In the profile area, the tiles must be laid across the entire surface. The joint space from profile to tile is completely filled with grout. Sensitive surfaces should be processed with special materials and tools that leave no scratch marks or damage. Soiling caused by tile adhesive or mortar should be removed immediately.
Material properties of the end profiles
The Schlüter®-RONDEC-DB end profile is available in various designs. You can choose between a stainless steel profile made of aluminum, anodized aluminum and anodized aluminum brass anodized. .
The Schlüter®-RONDEC-DB-A stainless steel profile is made of aluminum. If chemical exposure is expected, the usability must be checked. Aluminum is particularly sensitive to alkaline media. In connection with moisture, cement materials have an alkaline effect. Corrosion can occur depending on the concentration and duration of exposure. Grouting material or mortar on visible surfaces should therefore be removed immediately. The end profile must be fully embedded in the contact layer to form a tile. This prevents alkaline water from collecting in cavities.
The Schlüter®-RONDEC-DB-AE end profile and -AM stainless steel profile are made of anodized aluminum. Due to the anodized layer, they have a refined surface. In normal use, it retains its appearance. Visible surfaces must be protected from scratching or abrasive wear.
The tile profile impresses with its attractive appearance and practical properties. Since it is made of aluminum, you benefit from durability and optimized durability. To ensure that the attractive decor is retained for a long time, some care instructions should be observed. In any case, the noble jet profile must be protected from the formation of corrosion.
