Screed is a common type of flooring generally applied on top of a pored concrete slab. It is an ideal floor finish if you’re looking for something that’s strong and resilient. It has an extremely tough finish that’s able to withstand pressure from both foot and heavy equipment traffic, making it ideal for all types of buildings from homes to warehouses.
Not all Screeds Are the Same.
Standard old-fashioned screed is made up of cement and sharp sand.
Anhydrite screed is an updated version. It has twice the amount of thermal conductivity than more traditional screed. It’s better for the environment with 36% of the product being recycled, and it produces less CO2 than traditional sand-and-cement screed due to its gypsum content.
It’s mostly used for internal purposes, such as covering heating systems, thermal insulation, or for its acoustic properties. This screed can also be installed in external locations, due to the fact that it’s very hardwearing, water resistant and pretty much able to withstand anything you throw at it!
Anhydrite Screed Has all The Strength You’ll Need
When choosing a screed, you want one that is extremely hard wearing. Anhydrite screed is the ultimate product.
There are numerous other benefits too. It has minimal cracking and shrinkage, and it’s so fast drying you can have light traffic on it within 24 to 48 hours of it being laid. The screed is pump-able, quick to install, and much more cost effective than you think. It delivers an extraordinarily professional laser-levelled floor.
If you live in a house where dropping stuff is an everyday occurrence, dogs and cats are running around and furniture gets scrapped across the floor, you’ll find chipping or cracking an anhydrite screed floor almost impossible to do.
With its increased strength and bonding properties, this is a product that will last for a very long time with minimal maintenance required.
