When an existing floor is not suitable to receive one of our resin applications, or a floor needs to incorporate falls to drainage, we recommend laying a resin-bonded polymer modified screed. A polymer screed is similar to a traditional cementitious screed except there is the addition of an SBR additive to enhance drying times and to strengthen the floor. Shrinkage and cracking are minimised, permeability is reduced and flexural strength is improved. A polymer screed provides high performance at thinner sections and is ideal when normal thickness cannot be achieved.
The main advantages of SBR Polymer Modified Screeds are:
• Enhanced adhesion to the concrete base
• Thinner applications
• Resistance to shrinkage/cracking
• Improved toughness, durability and resilience
• Improved resistance to impact, abrasion and dusting
• Low permeability and reduced absorption of liquids and greases.
Reduced drying times of between 3-5 days enable the floor to receive resin applications sooner than traditional concrete floors.
