Application Guide

  • Ensure that you have the appropriate tools and the sufficient amount of ARDEX 8+9™ Rapid Waterproofing and Crack Isolation Compound

Coverage (2 coats)

  • Drywall – 100 sq.ft
  • Concrete – 70 sq.ft

  • ARDEX 8+9 requires a solid substrate that is clean, dry and free of oils, grease, wax, latex compounds, curing compounds, dust and all foreign matter. Do not install below 50°F (10°C) surface temperature
  • MIX 1 – Caulking Consistency - Mix a small amount of ARDEX 8+9™ to a lump-free caulk-like consistency for filling holes, gaps and joints. Always pour liquid into the mixing container first and then the powder. Working time is approximately 45 minutes at 70°F/21°C.
  • Crack Isolation - Use MIX 1 to fill around floor or wall penetrations, corner and floor/wall joints and dormant cracks up 1/8” before installing ARDEX SK MESH™. The unused portion of the trowel grade MIX 1 mixture can be blended back with the balance of the remaining powder and liquid for use in the next step, MIX 2
  • MIX 2 – Paint-able Consistency - Mix ARDEX 9 (powder) with one unit of ARDEX 8 (liquid). For best results, mix with an ARDEX T-2 Ring Paddle and a low speed drill. Always pour liquid into the mixing container first and then the powder. Mix thoroughly to obtain a lump-free, pour-able mixture. Coat the entire area evenly with a paint roller or brush and allow thorough drying (30 to 45 minutes). A second layer is required to obtain a waterproof membrane, and must be applied at a 90° angle to the first coat
  • Tiles can be fixed onto the second coat of ARDEX 8+9™ after one hour at 70°F/21°C. Use ARDEX MICROTEC™ Thin Set Mortars ARDEX X 77™ and ARDEX X 32™( for stone), ARDEX X 5™ or ARDEX X 4™ directly onto ARDEX 8+9™, all of which are suitable for porcelain, non-porous and glass mosaic tiles. ARDEX X 4 is suitable for tiles for internal applications only
