ARDEX X 32 Natural Stone Adhesive is a rapid hardening and drying, cement based adhesive for fixing natural stone floor and wall tiles, including moisture sensitive natural stone tiles and uncalibrated natural stone floor tiles. It may also be used for concrete slabs and ceramic tiles including porcelain tiles in internal and external situations. Tiles fixed with ARDEX X 32 can be grouted and subjected to foot traffic three hours after fixing at normal temperatures (20°C), even at maximum thickness. It is particularly suitable for use in situations where the adhesive bed has to dry quickly to reduce the risk of moisture staining of the stone. It is a white powder based on special cements, high quality synthetic resins and fillers, which is mixed with water to produce an easily applied mortar with a working time of approximately 60 minutes. The mortar adheres strongly to most building materials such as concrete, cement/ sand render and screeds, brickwork, blockwork etc.

Compressive strength (approximate):

  • After 1 day: 10 N/mm².
  • After 7 days: 15 N/mm².
  • After 28 days: 20 N/mm².


Fully tested to BS EN 12004.
