    John, working in the automotive industry I know that is petroleum. Which means any petroleum that is in the ardex that did not get encapsulated is floating. no big deal. It could simply be something they use so ardex doesn't stick to the container it is in or in the manufacturing process.

    Vinyle acetate co polymer. Probably lighter than water so it floats. Take a dish and put in a tiny drop of motor oil in it. The sheen will be there. Take a tile spacer and drop it in a bucket. It floats. You have tested Ardex and you know it works well. Just be sure to clean the oil off before tiling.

    FWIW, if I remember correctly, granite always contains at least these three minerals: mica, quartz, feldspar. Since sand can have many sources, it's not unreasonable that some of it could have been created from granite, but the majority of sand is quartz (highly purified suff might end up mostly quartz required for clear glass). But, mica does not disolve in water.
