Trowel-applied flooring underlayment for larger projects and thicker installations.
Dex-O-Tex Contex Concrete Admixture is a trowel-applied flooring underlayment designed for larger projects and thicker installations. Its synthetic polymeric latex emulsion serves as an additive for cementitious-based aggregates, which greatly improves adhesion, compressive strength, water absorption, abrasion resistance, and tensile strength.
Contex Admixture can be installed at temperatures as low as 50°F/10°C and used for both interior and exterior applications. It is also environmentally friendly with zero VOC content and minimal odor.
