Ardex Feather Finish can be used as an interior flooring underlayment and as an embossing filler. It is manufactured by German chemical company Ardex Gmbh and distributed in the United States by its Pennsylvania-based subsidiary Ardex Americas. It is also available at online retailers Amazon.com and Tools4Flooring.com.
Ardex Feather Finish is a blend of Portland cement and other hydraulic cements that is simply mixed with water and can be applied over a variety of surfaces to provide a smooth and permanent finish underlayment. It can be applied over porous surfaces such as vinyl sheets, vinyl tiles, concrete, masonry and wood, as well as ceramic, stone and terrazzo without priming. However, when applying over non-porous surfaces such as epoxy, metal and silicate-treated concrete, priming with Ardex P 82 Ultra Prime is required. Ardex Feather Finish prevents flooring problems such as crumbling, mold, mildew, staining and disbonding.
When it is mixed with primer Ardex P 82 Ultra Prime, Ardex becomes an embossing filler that can be used for flash-patching and filling depressions, ridges, seams and gouges. Ardex Feather Finish is self-drying without any volatile organic compounds, and a 10-pound bag covers up to 300 square feet. New flooring coverings can be installed in as little as 20 minutes. Ardex Feather Finish has a 4.5 star rating out of five stars based on 45 customer reviews on Amazon.com, as of November 2015. Tools4Flooring.com has a similar rating based on eight reviews.
