What is a Liquid Flow Screed?
Liquid flow screed is a liquid screed that provides fast, efficient and precise floor covering – with many advantages over traditional screed solutions.
What is Liquid Floor Screed suitable for?
Liquid Floor Screeds are suitable for most commercial and domestic buildings as a levelling layer. Liquid screeds offer complete versatility of use with: thermal and acoustic insulation, electrical services and under-floor heating systems. A floor screed is an extremely fast and efficient way of installing flooring, allowing up to 1000m of flooring to be laid per day on large commercial projects.
Floor Screeds and Liquid Screeds are particularly ideal for underfloor heating as the screed flows around and encapsulates the pipes, forming a void-free finish, making the heating systems more efficient.

How long do liquid screeds take to dry?
One of the most common questions we get asked is how long liquid screeds take to dry. Clients want to know how long it will be initially before individuals are to be able to walk on it, and then for the final finish to be installed whether that is tiling or carpet.
In actual fact there isn’t always an exact answer as different installations will have totally different conditions, but there are a few rules of thumb that can be applied and we have tried to detail those below.
For the first 24-48 hours:
The screed should now be left untouched until it is solid, which typically takes 48 hours. During this time, all the windows and doors should be kept shut and nobody should walk on the screed.
So how long will it take for screed to dry before you can walk on it?
It is essential that the material is left undisturbed for the first 24-48 hour period, and the full site traffic should be avoided for at least 2-3 days. It is also important to note that drying times relate to ambient humidity, temperature and number of air changes.
