 ARDEX Americas Introduces ARDEX S 28™ MICROTEC® Rapid-Set, Rapid-Dry, Super-Format Tile and Uncoupling Membrane Mortar

Aliquippa, PA, May 5, 2017 – ARDEX Americas is pleased to announce that ARDEX 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 4 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. There simply isn’t another product like this on the market,” said Russ Gaetano, ARDEX Marketing Manager, Tile & Stone Installation Systems.  He added, “We feel that this product will become an industry benchmark.”
