Cementious Overlayments


Allow you the freedom to create the right flooring for that one-of-a-kind look…from natural cement gray to brilliant integral colors, luxurious inlays and creative topical stain designs. Is the right choice when design flexibility, low maintenance and high durability are a must! Not to mention a concrete slab that might not be up to par and requires a fresh look.


There are many options when it comes to overlayments and some of our go to products include:



Self-Drying, Self-Leveling Concrete Topping


?ARDEX SD-T® is a self-drying, self-leveling, no troweling topping for fast track resurfacing, smoothing or leveling of indoor concrete. ARDEX SD-T® hardens fast due to its unique self-drying formulation – it can be sealed in as little as 2 hours depending on the sealer type, and opened to traffic as soon as the sealer has fully dried. Use ARDEX SD-T to provide a hard, flat, smooth surface for warehouses, utility rooms and light manufacturing. ARDEX SD-T® can also be installed in areas such as retail stores, television studios and all interiors requiring such a surface.
