  • ARDEX CD™ is a concrete resurfacing compound modified with high-performance polymers for exceptional bond strength. Formulated from a blend of Portland cement and other hydraulic cements, ARDEX CD can be used over the surface of existing concrete to produce a new wear layer as well as to fill in small surface defects, such as spalls and gouges. Ideal for sidewalks, patios, plazas, courtyards, walkways, driveways, parking garages, pool decks and most vertical concrete surfaces. When mixed with water, the result is a creamy, smooth, slurry consistency that can be applied by trowel, squeegee or hopper gun. Once applied, ARDEX CD can be broom textured before it sets for a reduced-slip surface

  • Resurface worn and spalled concrete to provide a “new concrete” finish

  • Easy to apply and hardens quickly

  • Freeze-thaw resistant

  • Suitable for foot and rubber tire traffic on commercial and residential applications

  • Recommended Tools: Mixing buckets, margin trowel, steel trowel, fine or medium-bristle finishing broom, 3” paintbrush (for edging), squeegee, hopper gun (where required), ARDEX T-2 Ring Mixing Paddle, a 1/2” (12 mm) heavy-duty drill (min. 650 rpm)

  • ARDEX CD is to be installed in as thin a layer as can be placed while getting full coverage. Typical installation thickness ranges from 1/16” up to 1/8” (1.5 to 3 mm), and ARDEX CD can be applied at a thickness of up to 1/2” (12 mm) in small, well-defined areas (see above). Please note that thicker areas will take longer to set than a dress coat, and will reduce the overall coverage. Suitable for foot and rubber tire traffic on commercial and residential applications

  • In warm weather, use cold water to extend theworking time

  • INSTALLATION GUIDELINES: Pour the mix onto an area of concrete and flat trowel, squeegee or broom it onto the surface while applying enough pressure to ensure good dressing-to-concrete contact. Maintain a “wet edge” during installation to help minimize natural colour variations that can occur between sections. Immediately apply a light broom-finish to achieve the desired texture, working in areas small enough to permit finishing without walking on the freshly installed dressing. ARDEX CD has a working time of approximately 10 to 15 minutes, depending on jobsite conditions. On vertical surfaces such as walls or stair faces, trowel, brush or spray the dressing using a hopper gun directly onto the prepared area. Smooth or brush the material to the desired finish.For minor patching, filling small holes, gouges or spalls (up to 1” [25 mm] diameter and 1/2” [12 mm] deep), mix 4 parts powder to 1 part water by volume and apply to the prepared surface with a flat steel trowel or putty knife. Repair areas should be allowed to set firmly (30 to 45 min. at 70°F/21°C) before applying the finish coat of the dressing. Cool ambient and surface temperatures willslow setting time. For larger or deeper repairs, use ARDEX CP™ Concrete Patch
