ARDEX FEATHER FINISH is a cement based smoothing compound designed to provide a smooth, permanent finish to a variety of internal substrates prior to the installation of floorcoverings such as vinyl, carpet and ceramic tile. ARDEX FEATHER FINISH allows the installation of most floorcoverings in as little as 15 minutes over concrete, wood, ceramic and quarry tile, all without the need for priming or additives. ARDEX FEATHER FINISH mixes with water to provide a smooth, creamy mortar for easy application. Engineered around a self-drying cement based matrix, all of the mix water is chemically converted within the product. This unique technology eliminates flooring installation problems such as debonding, crumbling, mildew and staining.
