King concrete provides a traditional cement/sharp/sand screed which is always of the highest quality and, unlike many other concrete supply companies, our floor screed is not pre-produced. We blend your material on-site to guarantee the freshest screed, in the exact amount you require.
If required, we also add retarders to your screed. The use of retardants slows done the hydration of the cement content and thereby prolongs the set time, giving you more time to work with the material.
We can also add fibres to your screed mixture. The use of fibres (which consist of high density monofilaments) prevents shrinkage, settlement cracking, increases the strength and absorbency of the screed as well as increasing impact resistance.
A floor screed is usually a cementitious material made from a 1:3 or 1:4.5 ratio of cement to sharp sand. It may be applied onto either a solid in-situ concrete ground floor slab or onto a precast concrete floor units.
The screed may be directly bonded to the base, or laid unbounded onto a suitable damp proof membrane which is placed over the slab. Alternatively, it may be applied as a floating finish over a layer of rigid insulation material. Screeding is an important part of King Concrete services and we pride ourselves on the quality of our mix on site product, which is equal to any form of ready mixed screed and competitively priced.
This means that King Concrete provides you with the most convenient flooring screed delivery service there is – when you want it, where you want it and in whatever quantities you need.
