Ruskington, Sleaford –we had a hand in the development of houses and bungalows built by Chanceoption Homes.
The project required a fast drying screed. This enabled the project to be completed earlier and make the properties available for sale quicker.
Mapescreed 704 is a fast drying screed which allowed for several of these benefits.
The screed we used in this project allowed for light foot traffic after only 12-24 hours.
Ceramics can be laid after only 7 days and resilient and woods after 14 days.
The underfloor heating can be comissioned after only 15 days.
Cement, Mapescreed 704, water and construction fibres like Adfil Fibrin 660F is placed in the vessel after half of the sand when mixing the screed. It is imperative that we use fibre in this project to significantly reduce the occurrence of plastic shrinkage and plastic settlement. After which, the other half of the sand is added into the vessel before the mixing begins.
The screed is then pumped to the exact location where it is required for convenience. The installers then lay the screed to provided datums.
