ARDEX S 16 and ARDEX S 16 W Now Fix Porcelain and Fully Vitrified Tiles Without the Need For an Admix
ARDEX UK are pleased to announce an exciting development for ARDEX S 16 Grey Rapid Hardening and Drying Tile and Natural Stone Adhesive, and ARDEX S 16 W White Rapid Hardening and Drying Tile and Natural Stone Adhesive.
ARDEX S 16 and ARDEX S 16 W have traditionally been used to fix standard ceramic tiles and natural stone. Now, due to ongoing performance testing, ARDEX S 16 and S 16 W have passed the CE Marking testing requirement at C2 FT, one of the highest European designations. This means both products can now fix porcelain and fully vitrified tiles in virtually all situations without the need for an admix, saving tile fixers valuable time and money.
Ideal for use in dry or intermittently damp locations, ARDEX S 16 and S 16 W still incorporate unique ARDEX ‘Rapidry Formula’ technology which binds the mix water within the adhesive ensuring tiles can be grouted or trafficked only 2-3 hours after fixing, whilst virtually eliminating the risk of water staining.
Alongside porcelain and fully vitrified tiles, ARDEX S 16 W is especially suitable for fixing translucent marble, glass mosaics and other natural stone tiles.
‘Fixers have for many years enjoyed the benefits of ARDEX S 16 and ARDEX S 16 W and can now fix virtually all types of tiles without the need for an expensive admix. The fact that the price for ARDEX S 16 and S 16 W remains the same with this additional feature makes the product exceptional value for money’ commented ARDEX UK Marketing Manager, Harrison Gardner.
