Ardex WA – Epoxide Adhesive and Grout
Ardex WA – Epoxide Adhesive and Grout. The BS EN 12004 R2 T designation for Ardex WA classifies the adhesive as an ‘improved reaction resin adhesive with additional characteristics and reduced slip’. Ardex WA is a solvent free, epoxide resin-based thin bed adhesive and grouting compound, for use where chemical resistance is required or where cement-based grouts are inappropriate. Ardex WA is suitable for fixing and grouting all types of ceramic tiles, glass and ceramic mosaics in internal and external situations. When fully cured, the Ardex WA mortar provides a decorative, waterproof, weather and frost resistant joint from 2-12mm wide that is chemically resistant.
Ardex WA is especially suitable for use in swimming pools, showers, bathrooms, shops, abattoirs, dairies, hospitals, hydrotherapy and spa baths, sports centres and other specialised buildings where high standards of hygiene and cleanliness are required. The hardened Ardex WA mortar can withstand full loads after 2 days curing at normal temperatures and after 7 days it is resistant to aqueous salt solutions, chlorine water, commercial cleaning agents, alkalies asweIl as a wide range of dilute mineral acids. The hardened Ardex WA mortar is resistant to normal domestic cleaning agents, swimming pool detergents, etc. Spillages such as coffee, tea, fruit juices, e.g. blackcurrant, etc., may stain the surface of the grout if not cleaned off immediately. Ardex WA has not been tested in accordance with Commission directive 1895/2005 and as such should not be used in direct contact with food, e.g. on food preparation surfaces. Ardex WA is however suitable for floors, walls and other surfaces in areas where food is prepared and a hygienic easily cleaned surface is required.
