Ready Mix Sand and Cement Screed is often referred to as ‘traditional screed’ since the introduction of flowable screeds.
Sand and Cement Screed is available with retarding agents to typically provide a working time of 8 – 12 hours from mixing. Sand and Cement Screed is also typically supplied with reinforcing fibres to reduce cracking
Sand and Cement screed is usually the cheapest screed option in terms of material cost and also has the advantage that it can be laid to create a surface that is flat but not level, ideal for wet rooms where a fall is required
Calcium Sulphate screed is sometime referred to as Gypsum Screed or Anhydrite Screed. Calcium sulphate screeds are less prone to shrinkage than cement based liquid screeds and therefore need less expansion joints.
They typically offer the cheapest cost of the flowable screeds however they do require laitance removal after curing which is a factor to consider.
Cementitious flowable screeds offer many of the benefits of Calcium Sulphate Screeds however they require more expansion gaps than calcium sulphate screeds.
Cementitious flowable screeds are usually more expensive than calcium sulphate screeds however there is a shorter curing time and no need for laitance removal which closes the gap in cost due to labour savings
