Beaver Homes (Mansfield) Limited – Edwinstowe Screed Project


The project was a new build bungalow requiring Edwinstowe screed.  Due to program constraints, a Fast drying screed was required, laid onto the previously prepared underfloor heating.


This Edwinstowe screed installation required us to use the fast drying Keracem Eco.

Keracem Eco is a fast-drying screed that has many benefits to the contractor/homeowner for this screeding in Edwinstowe.

  • Lay ceramics after only 24 hours
  • Lay resilient and woods after only 5 days
  • Lightfoot traffic after 8 only hours
  • Turn underfloor heating after only 3 days

The Keracem Eco was site batched, with the screed being mixed using a Putzmeister M760 with a skip and scarper. The skip and scraper working together to reduce labor effort when mixing the archive in Edwinstowe.


When mixing half of the sand is placed in the vessel, then Keracem Eco, water and construction fibers Adfil Fibrin 660F. The fibers are present to significantly reduce the occurrence of plastic shrinkage and plastic settlement cracking in the screed. The second half of the sand is then added into the vessel before mixing begins.

For convenience, the screed is pumped to the exact location where it is required, and then the installers lay the screed to provided datums.
