Ecoscreed Thermal is our patented high performance flowing screed, which offers all the benefits of our standard flowing screed but is made using crushed recycled glass instead of sand.
Our binder is made from de-sulphurised Gypsum which is also a recycled material, making the most “eco-friendly” energy saving flowing screed on the market today.
When used in conjunction with under floor heating, the thermodynamic effect of the glass reduces the amount of energy required to heat up the floor by up to 30%, therefore lowering overall running costs.
We batch mix this product on site to BS EN13813, the European Standard for flowing screeds. We continually check the quality of the mix by carrying out flow tests.
Ecoscreed Thermal is pumped into the building to the undersides of our level indicators which have been previously set by laser. Ecoscreed Thermal is self-compacting and self-smoothing and provides a highly accurate surface finish.
Coupled with the fact that it has extremely low shrinkage at 0.02% and does not crack or curl, our standard product also does not require reinforcement, due to its self-compacting nature.
Our product can be laid at thinner depths than conventional screeds. Up to 300m2 of screed can be laid per day at a depth of 50mm, thereby making it highly competitive in overall time and cost savings compared with conventional sand and cement screeds. It should be installed either as an un-bonded screed or as a floating system in both new build and refurbishment projects. Ecoscreed Thermal is ideal for use where under floor heating is being installed. The fluid nature of the flowing screed allows full contact with and encapsulation of the heating pipes and floor elements.
