Kennys Liquid Screeding » Recommendations when using Kennys Liquidscreed
Hardening and Drying
Kennys Liquidscreed may be lightly trafficked after 1 to 2 days, depending on drying conditions.
Care should be taken to avoid excessive water loss in the first 24 hours.
If windows or extenal doors are not installed, temporary provision must be made with polythene or similar. Direct sun must also be avoided during early life.
Abrasion and Impact
The material has good resistance to abrasion and impact, when compared with traditional cement sand screeds. However, screeds should not be treated as wearing surfaces and care should be taken to protect against excessive impact.
Kennys Liquidscreed readily complies with the Building Research Establishment Screed Test and indentation requirements of BS 8203.
Kennys Liquidscreed has virtually no drying shrinkage. Movement joints are rarely necessary, however large the floor, so long as extremes of aspect ration of greater than about 6 to 1 are not present.
This lack of shrinkage means that differential shrinkage leading to lifting and curling is absent.
Kennys Liquidscreed is non-combustible as defined by BS 476: Parts 4 and 8
