Upon drying the excess sand is vacuumed and may be retained for future use.
Sand is used as filler to economically extend the coverage of ARDEX A45 in non critical applications including large floor defects and deep ramps. Used up to a maximum ratio of 3 parts A45 to 1 part sand by volume.
Please note that adding sand will change the characteristics of compounds. In some cases a second application of un-sanded ARDEX compound may be required to obtain a sufficiently smooth surface.
