Aliquippa, PA – ARDEX Americas, the leading developer and manufacturer of specialty building products for substrate preparation, flooring installations and concrete repair & restoration received notice from Concrete Contractor magazine that ARDEX K 301™ Exterior Self-Leveling Concrete Topping and Underlayment was selected by its readers as one of the 16 Contractor’s Choice Top Products of 2011.
ARDEX K 301™ Exterior Self-Leveling Concrete Topping & Underlayment was first introduced in 2009 as the first, and remains
the only high-performance self-leveling topping for use outdoors. ARDEX K 301 is Portland cement-based used to smooth new or existing exterior concrete surfaces. It can be walked on in just 2 to 3 hours after installation, is freeze / thaw resistant and can also be used in wet areas such as docks or piers.
Another key use for ARDEX K 301 is as an underlayment for new or renovation construction that will be exposed to weather for a period of time before the installation of the flooring. In this specialized situation, the contractor needs to get the slab prepared to receive a floor covering, however still allow other trades access to complete their work before the floor covering is actually installed and more critically before the building is fully enclosed and acclimatized. ARDEX K 301 provides a unique, fast-track solution to this problem being able to stand-up against the elements and provide a durable substrate for the floor covering installation.
