ARDEX E 25 is a liquid admixture designed to enhance tensile strength, improve surface toughness and increase flexibility of selected ARDEX compounds. Used particularly with ARDEX K 15 in applications including levelling over tiles or ARDEX WPM 300 moisture barrier. Also used in high traffic areas to resist indentations from heavy loads.
For use with ARDEX K 15, K 12, K 11, K 10, K 005 and A 45
Where higher than normal strength or abrasion resistance is required, i.e. heavy wheeled traffic or castor wheels and other highpoint loadings (1 part
ARDEX E 25 to 2.5 parts of water).
Where the ARDEX screed has to be unavoidably left open or used as a temporary wearing surface before floorcovering is laid (1 part ARDEX E 25 to 2.5 parts of water).
When repairing stair treads (1 part ARDEX E 25 to 2.5 parts of water).
When used as a screed beneath paint and epoxy floor finishes, parquet and rubber flooring (1 part ARDEX E 25 to 2.5 parts of water).
When used in centrally heated buildings and over underfloor heating. Underfloor heating must be turned off 48 hours before screeding so that the sub-floor is cold (normal temperature) before the screed is laid and then left off for 48 hours per 5mm thickness and gradually brought up to operating temperatures. Precautions against rapid drying should still be observed (1 part ARDEX E 25 to 2.5 parts water).
When levelling rigid timber and metal decking (1 part ARDEX E 25 to 2.5 parts water).
When levelling over ARDEX Moisture Barrier with ARDEX P 82 primer for installation of vinyl tile and sheet, carpet and ceramics (1 part ARDEX E 25 to 4.5 parts water).
