Solution

Adlers Main Tile & Carpet Co., LTD, consulted ARDEX for a cost efficient quick resolution. ARDEX Sales Professional Karl Hanley worked with the ARDEX Technical Department to develop a solution to address the high moisture readings and need for a level and flat floor in only one weekend. It was determined that ARDEX K 60™ ARDITEX latex leveling compound would be installed over ARDEX MC RAPID Moisture Control System. When installing ARDEX K 60 over ARDEX MC RAPID that has not been primed or sand broadcasted, the ARDEX K 60 must be installed within 8 hours of application of ARDEX MC RAPID. Because speed was of the essence to get this job done, this was the perfect solution. Adlers Main Tile & Carpet was impressed with the ease of mixing, pouring and placing ARDEX K 60 and has confidence in the, reliability of ARDEX products. The VCT and rubber flooring installers were impressed by how smooth and flat ARDEX K 60 prepared for the final installation.
