 ACMS Patented Process Innovation

ARDEX Americas announces that ARDEX Concrete Management Systems™ (ACMS™) has earned patent protection from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, granting ARDEX exclusive rights to its new technology.

In true ARDEX tradition of invention and industry leadership, ACMS represents breakthrough innovation that proactively addresses concrete construction issues through a specified finishing method for new concrete. Using an Early Phase approach at the beginning of the construction cycle, ACMS will produce a flat and level floor capable of meeting the tolerances for flooring and other interior trades. The result is the elimination of unplanned leveling and delays and debates over who will bear the cost.

In new construction applications, ACMS saves time and labor costs by eliminating the traditional float and steel trowel steps in the finishing process. Using ACMS, the contractor will only place, consolidate, strike off and bull-float/re-straighten the surface and allow the bleed-water to dissipate. Following a wet-cover or chemical membrane cure (3 to 7 day min.) and surface brush blast, the system can be installed using ARDEX MC™ Moisture Control Systems to allow almost immediate installation of ARDEX underlayment and finished flooring while mitigating any future risks resulting from moisture emissions from the slab. Alternatively, as a Late Phase option, a layer of ARDEX self-leveling underlayment can be installed either immediately after deflection or during interior build out.

From slab pour to finished floor, ACMS has been successfully installed on a number of jobsites across the United States to the satisfaction of GCs, owners and architects.
