  • Designed for use where high point loading or heavy trafficking is expected
  • Significantly reduced drying times (to accept final flooring)
  • Better working properties providing easier and more reliable compaction
  • Quicker early strength development
  • Reduced drying shrinkage resulting from low water/cement ratio
  • Greater final strength
  • Fibres may be used to replace crack control reinforcement
  • Usable for 8-12 hours
  • Light foot traffic – 2 days
  • Site traffic – 5 days
  • Conforms to the requirements of BS EN 13813

  • Directly in contact with the slab with suitable damp proof membrane between slab and screed
  • Over an insulating layer to isolate the screed from the base
  • Precast concrete units or beams with reinforcement
  • In situ suspended floors
