Google Ardex rapid drying


Have you used this. It's saying an hour working time. Would like it to be abit more TBH. Just seen a YouTube clip on it. 7/1 mix with sand although ones needs a Baron forced action mixer. Difficult to find here to hire out

Anything different from it than ordinary S&C screeds. Can't seem to find a forced action mixer for hire anywhere near me either.
If I’m honest I can’t remember, I don’t think so to be fair. We used a pan mixer I seem to remember.
Expensive stuff tho

Done a bit of research on it and it's a product I think I'll be using in the next extension I build however this time, the clients didn't want to pay the additional costs for it. 42 f**k**g euro a bag and it was saying we needed 40 bags for 7/1 mix. 40sq meters of 75mm screed.
