What is Liquid Screed?
Liquid floor screeds comprise sand a binder system based on calcium sulphate. It is designed to provide a smooth level surface and is easy to pump or pour and dries quickly.

The finish of liquid screed does not curl and has very low shrinking rates with little risk of cracking. The surface regularity easily achieves a smooth finish.
