Select Schluter-RONDEC according to tile thickness.
Using a notched trowel, apply thin-set mortar to the area where profile is to be placed. If Schluter-RONDEC is to be used as edging for an outside wall corner, finish tiling one wall first; then trowel thin-set mortar over the corner area of the second wall.
Press the perforated anchoring leg of profile into the mortar and align.
Trowel additional thin-set mortar over the perforated anchoring leg to ensure full coverage and support of the tile edges.
Solidly embed the tiles so that the tiled surface is flush with the top of the profile; the profile should not be higher than the tiled surface, but rather up to approx. 1/32” (1 mm) lower.
Set the tile to the integrated joint spacer, which ensures a uniform joint of 1/16″ – 1/8″ (1.5 – 3 mm). With the stainless steel profiles, leave a space of approximately 1/16″ – 1/8″ (1.5 – 3 mm).
Fill the joint completely with grout or setting material.
Work with materials and tools that will not scratch or damage sensitive surfaces. Setting materials and grouts must be removed immediately, especially from anodized aluminum surfaces.
Note: Matching corners, including sink corners, and connectors are available for RONDEC.
