Dutch term or phrase: uitzetvoeg bij tegels met scherpe rand
Instructions on how/where to use a scraper after applying the sealant, in this case, what kind of angles/joints to use it. What would be the correct way to say it in English? The sentence is one of three examples. Thank you!

uitzetvoeg
expandable joint


Explanation:
Without original content, I am somewhat guessing this is about expandable joints or expansion joints - not for tiles with literal "sharp edges" but sharp edges in the pattern, for example between dark and light tiles.
