ARDEX Nominated for Best Innovation Award

Best Innovation Award - Specialist Plaster - Wall Repair Plaster

ARDEX Plaster

In 2015, ARDEX UK launched its new Specialist Plaster and Wall Repair Product range. Unlike traditional plasters and repair mortars, ARDEX products meet the demands of projects that require quick turnarounds by producing a strong, durable surface that can receive finishes in as little as one hour.

A key product in the range is ARDEX A 950 Multi-Purpose Renovation Compound. With excellent slump-free properties and deep-fill capabilities, the mixed mortar can be applied with ease from 2mm up to 100mm thick. Furthermore, with ARDEX Rapidry Formula Technology inside, tiling contractors may then go on to install ceramic tiles after just 90 minutes, and natural stone tiles after just 24 hours, regardless of thickness!

Versatile in use, ARDEX A 950 can be used on walls and floors for repairing and levelling, filling holes and cavities and for general building work; it can also be used as a render prior to tiling.

Notably, ARDEX A 950 is also ideal for use as a modelling mortar which can be smoothed and shaped to create architectural features such as columns and pedestals. It may be used for “dot-and-dab” fixing of plasterboards and tile backer boards, allowing tiling contractors to easily create boxing themselves to hide pipework and apertures, removing the need to build timber frames.

Finally, ARDEX A 950 is EC 1 classified and has no odour, and can therefore be used in sensitive installations.
