Cementitious Leveling Compounds
Cementitious leveling compounds are used to level pour substrates to achieve finer tolerances for the installation of final floor finishes which are tiles, carpet, wood flooring, linoleum, floor epoxy paints, etc. Cementitious thin section leveling screeds range from 3mm up to 40mm depending on the product and can be either hand or pump applied. Some compounds are classed as wearing screeds due to their high tensile strength and can be suitable for industrial toppings. Franks Flow Screed chose this kind of screeding application due to its fast drying properties.
