Fibre reinforced screed speeds renovation contracts

Suitable for overlaying existing surfaces such as tiles or flooring grade mastic asphalt,TREMCO SX100 Renovation Screedhas been developed specifically to speed the installation of new floorcoverings, including carpets, vinyl and timber systems in refurbishment applications.

Supplied in 25kg plastic lined sacks, the grey powder incorporates special fibres to reinforce the screed and provide excellent crack resistance. Meanwhile, the fast application, self-levelling characteristics help minimise downtime, while the option to apply by pump means areas of up to 2,000m2 can be laid during a single day.

SX100 should be used in conjunction with a DPM while tremco illbruck Technical Services can be contacted to carry out a moisture test to ensure the RH of the substrate is below 75%. Steel and metal decks should be prepared and primed withTREMCO CS100 Epoxy Primerfor Non-porous surfaces, while concrete or sand/cement screeds require priming withTREMCO CS150 Acrylic Primer

SX100 offers an open time of 30 minutes and provides an average coverage of 4 m2 per mix at a thickness of 4mm. It can be walked on in two to four hours and achieves a 28 day compressive strength of 30 N/mm2. Installation of final floor finishes can take place as soon as the relative humidity falls below 75%.

SX100 is available through the manufacturer's network of local and national stockists or direct from tremco illbruck.
