Ardex Engineered Cements is celebrating its 25th anniversary with the release of a special commemorative black mixing barrel, available only until Dec. 31. While the color has changed from red to black, the ease of use, capacity and tool kit inside are unchanged. The tool kit is comprised of five Ardex measuring buckets, pre-measured for precise water control; an Ardex T-1 mixing paddle, contoured to the inside of the barrel for fast and complete mixing; an Ardex T-4 spreader, to gauge the thickness of the product being installed; and an Ardex T-5 smoother, which allows for maximum smoothness and is necessary for feather-edging and touch-ups.
Ardex is a leading manufacturer of specialty cements that are used by flooring and building professionals for substrate preparation, flooring installation, concrete repair and resurfacing. In 2000, Ardex acquired the W.W. Henry Company, the world’s largest manufacturer of flooring adhesives used with resilient flooring, carpet, wood and ceramic tile. Both companies are headquartered in Aliquippa, Pa., near Pittsburgh. Visit www.ardex.com for more information.
