Latex Floor Screed Crowborough

When the nature of your floor's surface means that a degree of flexibility is required, it will be advantageous to use a latex self-levelling floor screed, rather than one with a more rigid finish. Latex screeds normally comprise two parts - a cement-based powder, and a liquid latex component. The liquid latex solution takes the place of the water that's used in other types of screed, meaning that it is quicker drying and more flexible.

Before the laying of your chosen decorative surface, this latex compound is used for levelling-out subfloors. This screed is suitable for substrate made from asphalt, wood, sand/cement, concrete or quarry tiles, is perfect for the application of adhesives and gives a smooth and durable surface. If your sub-floor has any movement in it, this type of latex floor screed will provide a crack-free, flexible finish, on which your chosen floor coverings can sit.

When using a "floating" screed, for example when screeding is being laid on the top of underfloor heating, depths of 50mm-75mm may be desirable, and latex screeds aren't suitable for this purpose.
