In this project, it was decided that Keracem Eco would be ideal. It has a normal setting but rapid drying use as the mineral binder. Designed for high-performance screeds and heat-radiant slabs.

A compressive strength just after the needed time, this is promised and delivered by Speed Screed team. A certified Sheffield screeding company.

 

Challenge

To deliver the screed quickly, to a high standard, ensuring that the screed is ready to accept floor coverings after 24 hours (ceramics).

Taking care of the post-installation stages and avoiding cracking of the screed, small or large – neither should be ignored. Which often comes with poor design and curing techniques when you hire unprofessional screeders.

 

Solutions

For this project, we use Putzmeister M760 with skip and scraper in mixing the screed. The skip and scraper reduce labour effort while mixing.

While the Keracem Eco was site batched. Half of the sand is then placed in the vessel followed by water and Adfil Fibrin 660F. Adfil Fibrin 660F is a construction fibre used to make sure there are minimal to no plastic shrinkage and plastic settlement cracking in the screed. The second half of the sand is then added before mixing.

The screed is then pumped to the location where it is required. After which, the installers lay the screed in the provided datums.

 

Results

Screed quickly laid, dry and ready to accept floor coverings in less than their allocated deadline.
