Traditional sand and cement screeds are slow and labour intensive to install. They are also highly dependent upon the quality of the installer.
Developed over twenty years ago, anhydrite screed has many obvious benefits compared to traditional sand and cement products. Being substantially quicker to lay, far less labour intensive and ideal for use with underfloor heating, the use of flowing screed has become widely accepted throughout the building industry.
Liquid screed is ideal for use with underfloor heating, as it conducts heat more effectively than traditional screed. The liquid screed flows around and encapsulates the under floor heating pipes, so that there are no air pockets, which means that the floor heats evenly and quickly, reducing energy consumption.
Screedflo liquid screed can be laid at 50mm depth with under floor heating instead of 75mm depth as with traditional screed, and 40mm on insulation where there is no under floor heating.
The screed can usually be walked on after 48 hours (dependent upon ambient weather conditions), and can be worked on 4 - 5 days later.
At Screedflo, we pride ourselves on developing systems that are environmentally sustainable.
The main constituent in our screed is the anhydrite binder. This comes from the recycled waste product from industrial processes. We take the product from this environmental process, and having purified it, re-use it in our screed.
As a result of our on-site batching, we use 30% less water compared to alternative screeds. As we are only mixing the amount of screed you require there is also an environmental saving resulting from there being no waste material. Additionally, there are no cement bags, polythene or pallets to dispose of either.
