Ultraflo® Hemihydrate Liquid Floor Screed

 
 

about

Ultraflo® is a hemihydrate liquid floor screed supplied throughout Ireland.  Hemihydrate liquid floor screeds have been developed in Germany and have been used successfully throughout Europe for over 25 years and in Ireland for nearly 10 years.

Due to its hemihydrate formulation, Ultraflo® self-levelling liquid floor screed has the benefit that it does not suffer from surface laitance (a scum/dust of material adhering to the top of the screed during the curing process) unlike other liquid floor screeds on the market that are not formulated in the same way. This unique advantage means ultraflo® hemihydrate liquid floor screed requires no buffing/grinding to the floor surface prior to application of floor finishes.

benefits

  • Not subject to surface laitance (a scum/dust of material adhering to the top of the screed during the curing process.) This unique benefit means ultraflo hemihydrate requires no buffing/grinding to the floor surface prior to application of floor finishes unlike other liquid floor screeds.
  • Not subject to shrinkage cracking or curling, meaning substantial reduction of movement joints.
  • Fast heat response times resulting in greater thermal efficiency when used with under floor heating.
  • Speed of installation, up to 2000m2 per day, and is virtually self-levelling.
  • Reduced laying depths, weights and drying times (as little as 50mm required).
  • Allows light traffic in 24 hours.
  • Less labour intensive installation.
  • Economical alternative to traditional sand:cement screed.
  • Quality controlled mix for consistency. (Accredited to ISO 9001)
  • Eco-friendly credentials, being formulated from a by-product of flue gas desulphurisation.

drying times

  • Under good drying conditions of 20°C  and 65% relative humidity Ultraflo® hemihydrate liquid floor screed laid at 40mm will dry in 40 days.
  • 1mm per day for first 40mm then 1/2mm per day for each mm of additional depth. For example 50mm screed will dry in 60 days.
  • With the use of under floor heating, a 50mm Ultraflo® hemihydrate liquid floor screed can be force dried in less than a month.
  • If surface finishes are fixed to a sand:cement screed prior to drying they may subject to cracking as a result of curling or shrinkage.
