Full product details below

Ardex A38 – Rapid Drying Cement for Internal & External Screeds has been specially formulated with ‘Rapid Dry Plus Fromula’ Technology. Ardex A38 screed can be walked on just 3 hours after application and ceramic and natural stone tiles can be installed after just 4 hours irrespective of thickness, making it ideal for fast track tiling projects. Resilient floor coverings such as carpet, vinyl and wood can be installed after 48 hours irrespective of thickness. Ardex A38 achieves rapid strengthening and will pass a BRE Screed (ISCR) Test after just 6 hours. After a day, it will also exceed the acceptable minimum compressive and tensile bending strengths attained by ordinary cement screeds after 28 days.

ARDEX A 38 is used to produce bonded, unbonded and floating screeds for internal and external locations, including wet areas such as swimming pools. It can also be used for large repairs to existing cement/sand screeds. It is ideal for situations where early foot traffic and rapid hardening is required.

Kerbside Pallet Delivery

Pallet deliveries will be to the nearest accessible kerbside location. If your property has restricted access please let us know at the time of ordering as this may incur an extra charge. Hazards or obstructions (such as steps, uneven ground, gravel, etc.) may necessitate the delivery being made to an alternative location nearby.

Due to insurance and health and safety regulations drivers are unable to transport goods into a customer’s property.

Take care when removing packaging to avoid damages or injury. Boxes of tiles can be very heavy, please make sure you will be able to move them from the kerbside to where they are required.
