Information ARDEX ProDrain®

An innovative and comprehensive passive capillary drainage system designed for most any size and thickness tile and stone. The system features the ARDEX ProDrain® Drainage Mat and ARDEX A 14™ Drainage Mortar. When mixed with the recommended aggregates, ARDEX A 14™ is hydrophobic and allows water to move easily and quickly through the matrix into the ARDEX ProDrain® Drainage Mat and away from the installation. The ARDEX ProDrain® Mat and ARDEX A 14™ Drainage Mortar work together to prevent capillary movement of water and moisture to move back up through to the covering providing maximum protection against efflorescence, framing and staining.
