Cement based liquid screeds

What are cement based liquid screeds?

Cement based liquid screeds offer a reduction in drying times allowing for floor coverings to be applied quicker than a conventional non cement based screed. They dry fast, require no sanding prior to the floor finishes and can receive foot traffic in as little as 24 hours after being placed.

The main benefits to a Cemfloor cement-based screed

Cemfloor

  • Thinner sections compared to traditional screeds.
  • Minimal drying shrinkage and no sanding required
  • Foot traffic after 24–48 hours
  • Exceptional thermal conductivity
  • Can be applied in wet areas
  • Reduced drying times depending on drying condition
  • Self-compacting – no voids around under floor heating pipes
  • No risk of contamination at concrete mixing plants
  • No surface dust after curing
  • Easy Installation (reduced time & cost)
