The main feature of flowing screed is a surface that is self-leveling. Accordingly, the screed is level after drying. In terms of drying time, there is an important plus point when using flowing screed as a heating screed compared to conventional cement screed. Flowing screed has an earlier heating time than cement heating screed and consequently dries (as a heating screed) faster.
Regardless of its application as a heating screed, flowing screed can be installed with a smaller thickness compared to conventional screed. Although it contains more water during installation, flowing screed reaches readiness for covering as quickly as cement screed thanks to its lower thickness. The installation of flowing screed is a laborious and sometimes complicated job for professionals, as a lot of experience and material knowledge is required, especially when preparing and mixing on site.
We always observe the current European standard regulations during installation. This also includes appropriate preparation of the side edges and the substrate. Any cracks must be repaired or holes closed through which the flowing screed could escape. The evenness is checked by visual inspection or the use of testing tools.
