Floor Screeds Market: Introduction
Floor screeds typically are cementitious material made up of a 1:4:5 or 1:3 ratio of cement to sharp sand. These floor screeds have increasing applications in the solid in-situ precast concrete floor or concrete ground floor units. Floor screeds are often confused with concrete as they are quite similar. Cement, water and aggregates are the important materials used in the formulation of floor screeds. Floor screeds are smooth, soil-like mixture made from cement and fine, sharp sand with fine aggregates. The maximum grain size for dry screed is around 4 to 5mm. Floor screeds are most commonly used finishing material on internal floors, generally floor screeds are 50–100mm thick. Floor screeds offers smooth finish to the flooring. There are various types of floor screeds used across the world. Bonded screeds, unbonded screeds, floating screeds and flowing screeds are the types of floor screeds. Bonded screeds are applied directly to concrete base, on the contrary unbonded screeds are applied to a water-resistant membrane that on top of the concrete. Floating screeds are commonly used for underfloor heating systems, as floating screeds are applied onto insulating surface. Flowing screeds are also known liquid screeds. Industrial screed can be used for more heavy duty applications by using a more coarse aggregates.
