Pumpable Sub-Floor Smoothing Compound Base Mix 

ARDEX K10-B is an advanced and versatilebase mix designed for applications from 7mm up to a maximum of 50mm.It is virtually tension free and is designed to rapidly level uneven, hard sub-floors. Used in conjunction with either ARDEX P82 or ARDEX P51 primers, ARDEX K10-B can be applied to old sub-floors, e.g. concrete and other hard and rigid bases. ARDEX K10-B is a grey powder consisting of special cements, graded aggregates and high quality synthetic resins .When mixed with water, a fluid, pumpable mortar is produced which can be applied to the required thickness in one operation. For thicknesses greater than 20mm, it is possible to incorporate larger aggregate in the mixed mortar, thus giving significant cost savings for greater application thicknesses.

When applied at 20°C ARDEX K10-B can normally be walked on after approximately 2 hours. The applied product dries and hardens rapidly so that even thick applications are ready to receive resilient floor finishes such as PVC within 24 hours. Ceramic floor tiles can be installed on top of ARDEX K10-B as soon as the surface of the ARDEX K10-B has attained sufficient strength and hardness, typically 4 hours after application at 20°C.


Floor coverings: Lower temperatures and higher RH will prolong the times and can lead to moisture inclusions. The times indicated are based on 18ºC and 65% RH
Substrates: The surface must be hard, sound and free of dust, dirt and other barrier materials such aspaint, lime coatings, plaster and adhesive residues, etc. Use ARDEX DGR to remove polish, wax, grease, oil and similar contaminating substances. Laitance must be removed from concrete surfaces. Direct to earth sub-floors must have an effective damp proof membrane. Contact our Technical Services Department for further information.
ALL SURFACES MUST BE PRIMED. ARDEX P82 primer is recommended for use on smooth, non-absorbent sub-floors, e.g. power floated concrete, smooth pre-cast concrete. ARDEX P51 primer should be used on porous or rough surfaces, e.g. cement and sand screeds, scabbled concrete, etc. See Priming and Preparation Leaflet for correct dilution rates. Do not use ARDEX K10-B ontop of asphalt.
