Semi-dry cementitious screeds provide some of the most robust screed layers that it is possible to create. This makes them a great option for large-scale commercial and industrial locations where the floor is likely to be subjected to challenges such as very heavy footfall, physical impacts and forklift truck movement.
However it takes the right materials and a well-trained team of applicators to make sure that the screed is designed, mixed, applied and finished properly. Failures at any one of these stages could ruin the integrity and quality of the screed layer and result in a number of problems.
Check out the video below that details the application of a semi-dry cementitious screed to get an idea of how this type of system is put down.
The particular type of screed in the above video contains a proprietary plasticising and accelerating admixture that modifies and enhances the performance of sand and cement based screeds which means that it is able to combine consistency, high strength, rapid installation and excellent moisture control properties with the ability to add a number of bolt-on subfloor systems such as underfloor heating and acoustic insulation.
