Readymix Floor Screed

Readymixed screed describes a thin, top layer of material (traditionally semi-dry sand and cement), Placed & compacted on top of the structural concrete or insulation, on top of which other finishing materials can be applied, such as carpet, laminate or tile.

Concrete Developments usually deliver semi-dry screed in upto 4m3 loads on a small tipper, experience has taught us that semi-dry screed performs far better if it is kept fresh. Floor screed is supplied semi-dry by tipper to your site.

Mixes

Polypropylene Fibres - These can be added to mixes to help overcome the traditional difficulties associated with ensuring the reinforcing mesh is placed at the correct depth. Fibres can substitute the use of crack control mesh and are mixed into the load at the plant, ensuring an even distribution of fibres.

Advantages

A quality controlled product over traditional screeds, produced from our computer batched mortar plant, giving better durability

Collections

We welcome collections of concrete or screed from our plant in Perry Barr, Birmingham.

Ordering

Please allow 24 hours notice for deliveries, although it may be possible to supply at shorter periods of notice. Delivery is by tipper at a semi-dry consistency onto a clean hard-standing or plastic sheet.

Retardation

Retander may be added to slow down the setting process if required.

Durability

All screeds are designed to be laid as the base material on which the finished covering is to be applied (ie tiles or carpet).

Preparation

Any surface to which Concrete Developments’ screed is to be applied must be clean, free from dust and structurally sound, in order that the screed can bond effectively.

Site Practice

When laying screed, proper compaction using a heavy tamp or weighted roller in layers is important. This ensures full compaction and prevents problems. The surface should be finished with a steel trowel or float, avoiding excessive trowelling which can lead to dusting and even crazing on the surface.

In accordance with good site practice, the finished screed should be protected to aid curing, typically using a plastic sheet. Always protect screed from extremes of weather conditions, both before and after placing.

Wherever possible, screeds should be left for at least 7 days after laying, but light foot traffic may be possible after 2 days.
