Application and Function
Schluter-DILEX-BWA features a trapezoid-perforated anchoring leg, made of recycled rigid PVC, which is secured in the mortar bond coat, and a dovetailed channel, made of recycled rigid PVC, which can be bonded to fixed building elements (e.g., door and window frames, bathtubs and shower trays, countertops, etc.) using Schluter-KERDI-FIX, epoxy resin, silicone, tile adhesive, etc.
The profile isolates the tile covering from the structure and accommodates movement via the 3/16" (5 mm) wide soft chlorinated polyethylene (CPE) movement zone, which also forms the visible surface. The lower CPE movement zone is slit to maximize the absorption of movement.
DILEX-BWA also prevents sound bridges, making it ideal for transitions in sound-rated floors.
