SAND & CEMENT SCREED

Specializing in Sand and Cement Traditional Screed Applications

Traditional screed, made from a mixture of sand and cement, is a widely favored option for construction projects. This screed can either arrive on-site pre-mixed or can be mixed directly on location using equipment like our Baron forced action mixer or our Putzmeister M760 screed pump. At Screedfast, we offer this as one of our premier services, backed by our floor screeding specialists. With their expertise and dedication, we ensure a high-quality and professional application every time.

TYPES OF SCREED SYSTEMS

Bonded screed

Bonded Screed

With bonded screed, the screed layer is fully bonded to the substrate using a bonding agent or a primer. It is most commonly used in areas that will experience heavy loading. 25mm-40mm – can go up to 200mm.

Unbonded screed

Unbonded Screed

Unbonded screed is when the screed layer is not bonded to the base, but instead it is applied to a Damp-Proof Membrane (DPM) or polythene, separating the screed from the concrete. 50mm-70mm – can go up to 200mm.

Floating screed

Floating Screed (With Insulation)

Floating is screed is most commonly used in residential properties as the screed is applied on top of a layer of thermal/acoustic insulation. The insulation is usually applied on to the DPM. Minimum thickness 75mm and 65mm is acceptable for domestic housing.

Floating screed

Floating Screed (With Underfloor Heating)

Another common type of floating screed is floating screed with underfloor heating, where the screed is applied above a layer of underfloor heating.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What Thickness should Sand & Cement Screed be?

For sand and cement screeds, the typical thickness should be at least 50mm for unbonded screed, between 25-40mm for bonded screeds, and over 65mm for floating screeds. It’s worth noting that these specifications might differ for modified variants. For detailed information, please consult our technical datasheets on sand and cement screed.

How Long does Traditional Screed take to Dry?

The drying duration for traditional sand and cement screed is influenced by both its thickness and the surrounding temperature. While it generally sets within 24-48 hours, the typical drying rate is about 1mm per day.
