  • ARDEX K 530TM is a self-leveling, decorative topping for fast-track resurfacing, smoothing or leveling of indoor concrete and certain non-porous surfaces. ARDEX K 530 can be installed up to 1” (25 mm) thick neat and up to 3” (7.5 cm) thick with the addition of approved decorative aggregates (see Technical Data section for minimum installation thicknesses by application). Use ARDEX K 530 in areas where a decorative floor is desired to provide a hard, flat, smooth surface that can be sealed. Also use over concrete and terrazzo substrates in areas that require a polished surface. Sealing or polishing can proceed in as little as 24 hours
