Liquid Screed or Flo – Screed is pumped to a datum set by laser levels to ensure that the finish is level and achieves SR2. It is designed to provide a smooth level surface in both commercial and domestic buildings prior to the application of floor finishes and is particularly suitable to application as a floating screed and for use with under-floor heating systems due to the higher thermal efficiency.
Liquid floor screed is self compacting and void free, it does not require reinforcement, it can be applied at a lesser depth than sand and cement and can take foot traffic in 24 to 48 hours.
As the screed is pumped into building there is less risk of damage from wheelbarrows and it is easier to place the screed on floors above ground level. The liquid screed can be pumped early in the build process allowing a longer time for drying and enabling carpenters to fix against a finished floor screed level.
It is a way of improving on the build time and improving the level of quality from the screed together.
