Schluter DILEX-EZ 6 and 9 Decorative / Movement Joint Profiles

Application and Function

Surface joints must be placed within the tiled surface regardless of substrate conditions. They provide stress relief from movements in the tile field due to thermal and moisture expansion/contraction and loading.

Schluter-DILEX-EZ 6 + 9 are prefabricated, maintenance-free surface movement joint profiles suitable for residential to medium-duty commercial aplications.

The profiles feature rigid PVC side walls, which are connected on top and bottom by soft PVC movement zones that form the visible surfaces. These profiles separate individual fields in the tile covering and accommodate movement through the soft PVC movement zones.

Each profile features two usable surfaces in different colors for increased design options. One surface of the profile features the PVC movement zone in a solid color, while the other surface features a brass, chrome, or luminescent inlay embedded in the PVC movement zone. The luminescent inlay glows for up to 10 hours after exposure to light, increasing the profile's visibility in the dark and at dusk.

Schluter-DILEX-EZ 6 and 9 are flexible and can be used to form curves. The height, "H", of Schluter-DILEX-EZ 6 is 1/4" (6 mm); the height, "H", of Schluter-DILEX-EZ 9 is 11/32" (9 mm).

Installation

  1. Select Schluter-DILEX-EZ 6 or -EZ 9 according to tile thickness. For tile thicknesses greater than 11/32" (9 mm), Schluter-DILEX-EZ 9 must be back-buttered with thin-set mortar.
  2. Set tiles up to the point where Schluter-DILEX-EZ is to be installed. Apply thin-set mortar to tile edges. The profile must align directly with movement joints in the substrate below. Press the profile against the tile edge and flush with the tile surface so that the ribbed, hourglass-shaped section is completely embedded in the mortar.
  3. For the next row of tiles, apply thin-set mortar to the side wall of the Schluter-DILEX-EZ profile already in place; then press the tiles against the profile so that they are flush with the profile surface.
  4. Schluter-DILEX-EZ may be installed with or without a small joint to the adjacent tile.

Material

Schluter-DILEX-EZ 6/9 profiles consist of rigid PVC side sections that are connected at the top and bottom with a soft PVC surface. Brass, chrome, or fluorescent material inserts are placed and coated with protective layer of transparent PVC on one side of the profile.

In special cases, the suitability of a proposed type of profile must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses.

Schluter-DILEX-EZ 6/9 is resistant to most chemicals commonly encountered in tiled environments. The luminous properties of the fluorescent version make it ideal for hospital and retirement home applications.

Maintenance

Schluter-DILEX-EZ 6/9 requires no special maintenance and is resistant to mold and fungi. Clean profile using common household cleaning agents.
