DILEX-EK and DILEX-RF are two piece profiles with a tongue and groove connection for permanently flexible corner joints at floor/wall transitions and skirting.

DILEX-EK and DILEX-RF can absorb especially extensive movements of up to 8 mm. Such movements occur particularly in edge joints of coverings over floating screeds and in heated screeds in the area of floor/wall transitions and along skirting. The trapezoid perforated, lateral anchoring legs of the profile are firmly embedded in the tile adhesive of the floor covering. The chamber of the lower profile portion of DILEX-EK allows for sliding the cut edges of floor tiles into place. The profile DILEX-RF does not have such a chamber. This allows for a wide selection of tile thicknesses, since tiles can be installed at a lower level. The reduced size of the visible area makes the edge joint appear narrow and decorative. The flexible tongue and groove connection is capable of absorbing movements up to 8 mm. The use of DILEX-EK and DILEX-RF reliably prevents the formation of sound bridges in the floor/wall transition, which reduces the transmission of sound.

Material

DILEX-EK and DILEX-RF consist of a material combination of recycled rigid PVC for the lateral anchoring legs and soft CPE for the expansion zone of the tongue and groove connection. The visible areas are of identical colour.

Material properties and areas of application

DILEX-EK and DILEX-RF are used as corner movement profiles for floor/wall transitions of tile coverings installed in the thin-bed method. The material is resistant to the chemical stresses that are typically associated with tile coverings.

The CPE material is UV- and weatherresistant as well as specially treated to resist fungal and bacterial growth and suited for contact with food. CPE stands out for its resistance to a variety of acids, alkalis, oils, fats and solvents. In special cases, the suitability of the selected profile type must be verified based on the anticipated chemical, mechanical, and/or other stresses.

Installation DILEX-EK

  1. Select DILEX-EK according to the tile thickness, where O = thickness of wall or skirting tiles, and U = thickness of the floor tiles. The height “U” of the profile must be sufficient to easily insert the floor tile into the chamber (e.g., U 11 for a tile thickness of approx. 8-10 mm).
  2. Apply tile adhesive to the attachment points of the trapezoid-perforated anchoring legs. Firmly press the profile into place and trowel adhesive over the anchoring legs. As an alternative, DILEX-EK may also be loosely installed, with adhesive trowelled over the anchoring legs during tile installation.
  3. Insert the floor tiles into the profile chamber, and install the wall or skirting tiles above the profile, leaving a joint of approx. 2 mm. Avoid the formation of hollow cavities in the area of the anchoring leg.
  4. Completely fill the space between the tile and the profile with grout.

Maintenance

DILEX-EK and -RF are specially treated to resist fungal and bacterial growth and require no special maintenance or care. They can be cleaned with regular household detergents when cleaning the tile covering.
