After Care

 

MOISTURE

With liquid flow screed, the moisture in the screed must have enough time to evaporate. It is extremely important to ensure that the moisture was removed from the screed before applying your final floor finish as most adhesives and floor finishes will react to the moisture.

LIQUID SCREED DYING TIME

As a rule of thumb, the screed will dry at a rate of 1mm per day up to a depth of 40mm, and 0.5mm per day for anything above 40mm. For example, if you laid your screed at 50mm; it will take almost 60 days to dry unaided.

Liquid screed can be force dried after 7 days by using dehumidifiers. It can also be use if the underfloor heating is in place.

In addition, the moisture content in the floor must be 0.5% or below on a moisture meter.
