The Schluter KERDI TS Bathtub/Shower Sealing Kit is a set for waterproof connections between bathtubs/shower trays and the Schluter KERDI Waterproofing System.
The Schluter KERDI TS Tape is a standard-compliant waterproofing strip made of polyethylene with double-sided fleece fabric and a self-adhesive sound insulation strip on the reverse side. When correctly installed, it creates a secure bond between built-in components such as bathtubs or shower trays made of steel/enamel, acrylic or mineral casting and the adjoining substrate.
Schluter KERDI TS Tape is waterproof and can withstand all chemical stresses that typically occur in conjunction with ceramic tile coverings. It is free of decay and rot-resistant and is highly elastic. Furthermore, it is largely resistant to the effects of watery solutions of salts, acids and alkalis, many organic solvents, alcohols and oils. Resistance to chemical stresses beyond standard domestic cleaning agents should be verified separately.
The Schluter KERDI TS Bathtub/Shower Sealing Kit contains a length of the sealing tape, 1 x 290ml tube of Schluter KERDI FIX Sealing Adhesive, 2 x cleaning cloths and a number of plastic 90° corner installation pieces. There is also a basic set available which contains just tape, cloths and corner pieces. The kit is available in 4 variations:
- 2m – Contains 2 metres of sealing tape, 1 x 290ml KERDI FIX, 2 x cleaning cloths and 1 x corner piece.
- 2.8m – Contains 2.8 metres of sealing tape, 1 x 290ml KERDI FIX, 2 x cleaning cloths and 2 x corner pieces.

- 10m Basic Set – Contains 10 metres of sealing tape, 8 x cleaning cloths and 6 x corner pieces.
Also available is the Schluter KERDI TS ZC Set – this is a flexible corner seal set used in special installation situations to create a waterproof seal around the corner to any adjacent horizontal surface. See the product gallery above for an example illustration of this. This set contains a 120 x 120mm PE Fleece Collar and a plastic 90° corner installation piece.
Schluter KERDI TS Tape can be used with the Schluter KERDI CP Cut Protection Tape – this is a cutting protection strip that can be shortened to any length and installed over the Schluter KERDI TS Tape and behind the silicone seal around the bathtub/shower. It protects the connection tape seal in the event that the silicone joint is removed/replaced at a later time. This strip is available in 4 lengths: 2, 2.8, 3.8 or 10 metres.
