Schluter DILEX-MOP Screed Movement Joint Profiles

Application and Function

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.

Schluter-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.

Installation

  1. Select Schluter-DILEX-MOP 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.

Material

Schluter-DILEX-MOP consists of recycled rigid PVC side sections that are connected at the top by a soft PVC movement zone.

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-MOP is resistant to most chemicals encountered in tiled environments. The side sections of the profile, 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.

Maintenance

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