It is not without reason that we deal so intensively with the topic of screed - it has a supporting function in the truest sense of the word. In principle, the screed acts as an intermediate floor: it is applied as a layer to the supporting substrate, such as a concrete floor, before the selected floor covering is laid. And with good reason, because the right screed
- evenly distributes the pressure on the underlying insulation.
- compensates for unevenness in the subsoil.
- forms a level base for any floor covering.
- insulates heat and footfall noise.
- can also be used or coated without a floor covering.
- brings the floor to the desired height.
Screed can therefore fulfill various tasks if it has been laid in the right way - namely as a Bonded screed, as a floating screed, as a screed on a separating layer or as a heated screed. On the other hand, it depends on the composition, i.e. on the decision between Cement screed, synthetic resin screed, magnesia screed and calcium sulphate screed, also known as anhydrite screed referred to as.
