Rapid Drying Cement for Internal Screeds.
ARDEX A 23 is a special cement for producing a rapid hardening floor screed for internal use which allows ceramic tiles to be fixed after 48 hours, natural stone after 72 hours, and resilient floor coverings after six days. ARDEX A 23 is used to produce bonded, unbonded and floating screeds in internal locations where early foot traffic is required and where rapid drying is essential, e.g. to allow ceramic/ porcelain tiles to be laid after 48 hours. It can be installed on ground supported concrete slabs if an effective damp proof membrane is present. ARDEX A 23 is not suitable as a wearing surface.
