When installing microcement, laminate flooring, or tiles, the application of a screed becomes essential if the underlying structure lacks levelness.
Its primary function is to provide a flat and polished surface, creating an even foundation for your selected floor covering.
Self-leveling compounds should not be used as a final surface and must always be concealed under a floor finish, such as microcement, tiles, or laminate flooring.
This approach is particularly favored when implementing underfloor heating systems.

Adhering to the highest standards, it is advisable not to span an area exceeding 40 square meters or a length in any single direction greater than 8 meters without incorporating expansion joints for the prevention of movement-related problems. Additionally, we incorporate an anti-crack mesh and may introduce fibers directly into the mixture for added reinforcement.
FIBRE REINFORCED (SCREED MALTA)
To bolster its structural integrity, we employ either polypropylene fibers or metallic meshes, mitigating the potential for cracks and flexing during the drying process. This effectively curbs the tension that arises as the cement sets.
SELF-LEVELLING FLOOR (SCREED MALTA)
It incorporates enhancements that allow it to self-smooth to a certain extent, thereby reducing the labor required. Such flooring options are typically supplied pre-mixed and efficiently pumped onto a meticulously prepared surface, enhancing application speed and minimizing material wastage.
LIGHTWEIGHT SCREED WITH EXPANDED CLAY
The primary benefit of utilizing lightweight flooring with expanded clay lies in its reduced weight. Conventional concrete screed can be notably heavy, sometimes rendering it nearly impractical for certain applications.
FAST-DRYING (SCREED MALTA)
Crafted with specific accelerators for rapid drying, this flooring is ideal for applications where minimizing downtime is critical. It is a common choice in industrial, commercial, and healthcare facilities.
Unlike traditional screeds, which can take weeks to dry before adding the final floor finish (such as microcement or tiles), this innovative solution significantly reduces drying times, even in unfavorable environmental conditions like rain or high humidity.
Moreover, it is available as a reinforced flooring option for high-traffic areas, making it a favored choice in contemporary construction ventures.
SCREED WITH UNDERFLOOR HEATING
Numerous homeowners choose to install underfloor heating, employing either electrical elements or water pipes to provide warmth throughout the space. During the installation of underfloor heating systems, the components or pipes are embedded within a layer of self-leveling concrete that integrates a thermal insulating stratum.
