How to use ARDITEX NA latex and powder



To create an even surface with ARDITEX NA, first ensure you prepare the area thoroughly. Remove all trace of polish, dirt, dust, paint, plaster and other debris such as loosely adhered materials or those which could be compromised upon contact with water. The integrity of the flooring should also be checked to ensure it is sturdy enough for a levelling compound to be applied. 

To use, gradually mix according to a ratio of one 20kg bag of ARDITEX NA powder to 4.85kg of ARDITEX NA latex. You can then begin applying with a trowel from a feather edge up to 12mm when using just one application, or 30mm if used in conjunction with ARDITEX Coarse Aggregate. 

If your chosen surface is wooden flooring, ensure all boards are fully secured. For porous surfaces, a handy tip is to apply water to the surface to limit the chances of suction occurring. 

ARDITEX NA is moisture-tolerant, which means it can be applied to damp surfaces but not to those with surface water. If you wish to install a moisture-sensitive covering, or if applying over concrete or sand screed flooring that is subject to rising damp or high moisture post-construction, a damp-resistant membrane will also need to be applied before the final covering. 

ARDITEX NA should be applied at temperatures over 5°C and is not suitable for use on soft flooring materials including cushion vinyl, cork, linoleum, rubber.
