  ARDEX WPC is a rapid drying waterproof protection coating that allows tiling to commence after just 90 minutes.
  The adjustable mix ratio means you can make a thicker mix to fill small cracks, gaps and joints with a small trowel,
  then a thinner mix to cover the walls with the roller. Available in white or grey.
