How To Apply Ardex A46
Applying Ardex A46 involves several steps, and it's crucial to follow the manufacturer's guidelines for the specific project requirements. Below is a simplified step-by-step guide for applying Ardex A46 to repair and resurface concrete:
Materials and Tools:
- Ardex A46
- Clean water
- Mixing container
- Mixing paddle
- Protective gear (gloves, safety glasses)
Step 1: Surface Preparation:Ensure that the substrate (the surface you're repairing) is clean, sound, and free of any loose particles, grease, oil, or other contaminants. It's often recommended to dampen the substrate with clean water before applying Ardex A46.
Step 2: Mixing Ardex A46:Follow the manufacturer's instructions for mixing ratios. Typically, you'll add clean water to a mixing container and then gradually add the Ardex A46 powder while stirring. Use a mixing paddle and mix until you achieve a smooth, lump-free consistency.
Step 3: Application:Apply the mixed Ardex A46 to the prepared substrate using a trowel. Work the mortar into cracks, holes, or other areas that require repair. Ensure an even and smooth application. The product is designed to be slump-free, meaning it should maintain its shape and not sag.
Step 4: Finishing:After applying Ardex A46, you can use a trowel to finish and smooth the surface. Make sure the repaired area is flush with the surrounding substrate.
Step 5: Curing:Allow Ardex A46 to cure according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Curing times may vary based on environmental conditions and the specific product formulation.
Step 6: Sanding or Painting (if needed):Once Ardex A46 has fully cured, you may need to sand or paint the repaired surface to achieve the desired finish. Follow the manufacturer's guidelines for any additional finishing steps.
Always refer to the product data sheet and instructions provided by Ardex for the specific product you are using, as application methods and requirements may vary. It's also essential to consider environmental conditions, substrate conditions, and any other factors that may affect the application process.

We are also currently unable to deliver outside of the UK on our regular carrier so if you require delivery outside the UK please call or email the details to the office as we reserve the right to refuse service or refund orders based on this.
Guarantee next day delivery.
Some of our products have a note that states – if ordered before 1pm and being delivered to UK mainland on a next day basis.
Please note that given the current circumstances alot of carrier companies are struggling to keep up with demand and although we do book these deliveries as next day services, the carriers cannot always fulfil these and an extra day may be required.
A high percentage of our advertised goods are stock items but be aware that if you are taking very large quantities of stock that we may not be able to fill your order fully on first delivery. Please call the office to check to not be disappointed.
We are also an active trade counter and part of a larger network of companies so stock can be taken at any time but we will always aim to deliver your goods as soon as possible.
Also if ordered along side goods that we cannot guarantee next day delivery on, these will be delivered based on the schedule of the other item.
Signature required on delivery.
The carrier we currently use requires a signature for all deliveries as a proof of delivery. If you cannot guarantee someone will be home to receive this please leave delivery instructions for a safe place or neighbour to leave your goods with. Due to covid and new contactless deliveries, our carriers will not require a signature but will take down the recipients name as POD.
If no one is available to take the delivery, the courier will leave details at the address to rearrange delivery or may leave with a neighbour. Note we may need to make an additional handling charge for the return and re-delivery if a package is unable to be delivered multiple times due to no one being home to receive this. Due to covid our carriers are restricting the number of re-delivery attempts.
After three attempted deliveries our carrier will return the goods to ourselves and in this worst case situation, we may cancel the order and refund your money, excluding any additional charge for the return and re-deliveries.
