Two years work by CEMEX technicians and recent admixtures developments have led to the launch of a new pumpable, self- smoothing, levelling screed, Supaflo-C. The new product, launched today at UK Civils exhibition in Birmingham, is based on CEM I cement.
“Significant development work in terms of laboratory and site trials has gone into the design and production of Supaflo-C. This product can offer the contractor significant benefits – it’s easy to lay, dries quickly, has an excellent finish and can be used in areas susceptible to water ingress such as bathrooms and changing rooms,” comments Steve Crompton, Technical Director CEMEX UK.
Supaflo-C is perfect for internal floors in houses, schools and colleges, health centres and light commercial usage. Recently, the first contract of eight cu metres was used by contractor Co- Dunkall and laid in a new build house at Caston in Norfolk on the ground floor 55mm thick covering under floor heating. It gave the same plastic properties and ease of installation as an Anhydrite flowing screed.
The new screed is available across the network of CEMEX UK Readymix Plants.
