The Benefits of Flow Screed

flow screedFlow Screed delivers an advanced screeding solution which serves best when applied in conjunction with under floor heating system. Also called Liquid Screed, the Flow Screed is a type of screeding method that brings more advantages over the traditional screeding of sand and cement mixture. Pump-applied, free flowing and self compacting synthetic anhydrite, this new generation screeding product is applicable for both residential and commercial developments. It brings benefits such as the quick pouring time of the screeding. 100 m2 of liquid screed for instance, can be applied in just an hour. And the process of the screeding require lesser labour intensive, which make you save a fair amount on your overall building expenses.

Unlike the traditional floor screed method, liquid screed delivers advantages such as the low possibility of shrinkage and cracking. Liquid screed is the go-to screeding process for floor building with under floor heating system. The flow screed fully wraps around the UFH pipes thus completely enveloping it. With the screeding materials featuring a higher thermal efficiency, it contributes to the better responsiveness and better function of the heating system. Liquid is also a better screeding option, because you would not need a wheelbarrow here for the application. Unlike with the other method wherein the wheelbarrow need to be wheeled back and forth which can possibly damage the pipes.

Flow screed is appropriate for use in all kinds of houses and offices, and it is presently used in many commercial buildings, hospitals, and airports. Liquid screed dries faster and can be laid substantially thinner compared to  the other traditional materials. Guaranteeing to fill all voids and irregularity, Liquid Screed is the best option for a good quality sub-flooring. It can be forced dried by turning on the UFH system, seven days after its installation so you can already apply the floor finishing surface which can be floor tiles, vinyl or wood.
