It is the most popular screed in the range and is a blend of Gyvlon binder, special additives and selected aggregates mixed with clean potable water to produce a pumpable, self smoothing, flowing screed (manufactured to BS EN 13813).

It is designed to provide a smooth level surface in both commercial and domestic buildings prior to the application of floor finishes. It can be used bonded, unbonded or floating and is particularly suitable for use with under floor heating.

Features:

  • Avoids the need for reinforcement.
  • Easily achieves SR2 finish as described in BS 8204.
  • Environmentally friendly - recycled content of 36%, VOC free, 100% recyclable.
  • Excellent thermal conductivity.
  • Extremely low shrinkage - does not curl and minimizes the risk of cracking.
  • Increased productivity - 2000 m²/day can be easily achieved.
  • Large bay sizes of up to 1000 m² depending on application (heated floors 300 m²).
  • Minimal thermal expansion (0.012 mm/mK).
  • Non combustible (tested to BS 476-4).
  • Protein free - cannot harbour harmful bacteria.
  • Self compacting.
  • Self curing.
  • Significantly reduced thickness when compared to traditional sand/ cement screed.
  • Weight saving as a result of thinner section.

Primer:

Requires priming prior to application of adhesives; generally acrylic dispersion or water based epoxy.
