Aliquippa, Pa.—Ardex Americas’ S 28 Microtec rapid-set, rapid-dry, super-format tile and uncoupling membrane mortar is now available for purchase at Ardex distributors throughout North America.
Formulated with Ardex proprietary self-drying technology, Ardex S 28 is fully dry in just four hours when installing even the largest, most dense tiles. Suitable for interior use, Ardex S 28 is a high-performance rapid setting and drying, thin to medium bed mortar with a unique semi-pourable consistency for ease of application and a much easier ability to obtain full coverage when installing large and super format tile.
Ardex S 28 is highly flexible with virtually no shrinkage and delivers an unmatched open time for a rapid set mortar (45 minutes). Its semi-pourable consistency also makes Ardex S 28 the perfect choice for installing Ardex Flexbone uncoupling membranes and most other uncoupling membranes.
“We’re excited to be releasing Ardex S 28, because of its unique self-drying technology, semi-pourable consistency and revolutionary open time of 45 minutes,” said Russ Gaetano, marketing manager, tile & stone installation systems, Ardex. “There simply isn’t another product like this on the market. We feel that this product will become an industry benchmark.”
