Screed is a material layer spread over a surface to provide a level base.
Different types of screed can be used for other purposes. Underlay screed is typically used beneath flooring while bonding screed improves the bond between the floor and the underlying substrate.
Screed can offer several benefits, including improved durability, increased thermal insulation, and reduced sound transmission. It can also help to level uneven surfaces and create a smooth finish
Various types are available, each with unique properties and uses. Here are a few different types of screeds you should know about:

We use Gyvlon binder or Cemfloor binder to produce our liquid-flowing screed. This is ideal for underfloor heating systems as it improves the system’s efficiency by enhancing the heat transfer as the screed fully encases the pipes.
Gyvlon screed is environmentally friendly when compared to traditional screeds. The Gyvlon binder production releases over 95% less carbon dioxide when compared to the output of conventional sand cement screed.
Our Anhydrite or Cemfloor liquid flowing screed is supplied to third-party contractors who use a pump to place the material; please call us for more details.
We can deliver Gyvlon or Cemfloor to Somerset, Devon, Dorset, Wiltshire and parts of Hampshire & Gloucestershire.
Flowing (or liquid) screeds have gained popularity due to their ease of installation using special pumping equipment, allowing large areas to be covered quickly.
They also offer better thermal conductivity, making them suitable for underfloor heating systems.
Each type has its advantages, depending on your specific requirements.
Choosing the right one for your project is essential by considering factors like load-bearing capacity, drying time, curing process, and finish required.
By understanding these different types, you can make an informed decision when selecting the best option for your flooring needs.
