Calcium sulfate based screed for use above ten storeys. It 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).

Specially formulated to help reduce moisture loss to pump lines and in line segregation whilst maintaining all the normal features of a Gyvlon flowing screed. Specialist pumps may be required over certain heights.

Features:

  • Easily achieves SR2 finish as described in BS 8204.
  • Excellent thermal conductivity.
  • Ideal for use with under floor heating and gives excellent performance compared to floating floors.
  • Increased productivity - up to 1200 m²/day can be achieved.
  • Minimal thermal expansion (0.012 mm/mK).
  • No need for loading out prior to flooring.
  • Protein free - cannot harbour harmful bacteria.
  • Self compacting.
  • Self curing.

Primer:

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