Ardex Americas announces Ardex S 1-K, one-component waterproofing and crack isolation membrane. Ardex S 1-K is a single-component topside waterproofing compound that is easy to use and produces a flexible waterproof coating for use in showers, bathrooms, and other wet areas. Recommended for use over a wide range of substrates and finishes, the highly-workable consistency minimizes drips and splatters.

S 1-K provides crack isolation up to 1/8 in. (3 mm). Available in two convenient sizes (large 3.5 and small 0.7 gallons), Ardex S 1-K provides coverage at nearly 57 sq. ft. per gallon in two coats.

“We’re excited to add to our waterproofing line this easy-to-use, single component solution,” said Russ Gaetano, Ardex senior marketing manager, tile and stone installation systems. “Everything about Ardex S 1-K was designed to provide ease for installer, even the containers are oval shaped to readily accommodate a roller.”
