Solution:

A specification was done with a full Ardex system put forward which included waterproofing, priming and Smoothing and Leveling. The 4000m2 project was waterproofed using Ardex WPM300 which is a water based epoxy polyamide membrane this acts as an effective moisture vapour suppressant, we then used Ardex P82 as our primer and Ardex K39 as the smoothing and leveling compound which was selected due to the extra open time and workability.

Ardex K39: This high flow, levelling and smoothing compound provides extended workability. This market leading product has a workable wet edge of up to 40 minutes. With its extended wet edge, fresh applications of ARDEX K 39 can be easily smoothed into existing pre-applied material for up to 40 minutes after application, making it ideal for complicated areas, adjoining rooms and large areas where pumping is required. Furthermore, the use of ARDEX K 39 eliminates the need to ‘rub down’ any surfaces.

It has been designed for priming smooth and impervious surface such as concrete, terrazzo, glazed ceramics, quarry tiles, metal and sound paint coatings
