Dry Screed Vs Traditional Screed

You may be wondering what the difference is between dry screed and traditional screed, and which option is right for your flooring project.

A traditional screed mixture includes sand, cement and water, whilst a dry screed mixture does not include water and therefore takes considerably less time to dry. Drying of the floor additionally depends on the thickness of the screed and the floor area. For example, if you have spread screed on a huge floor area it will take more time to dry. Therefore, we guide our clients on the optimal screed for their requirements.

Although it has been almost 50 years since traditional screed was used for the first time by people in our industry, we ourselves observe the remarkable use of this screed over the years. In terms of durability, reliability and versatility, traditional screed has delivered an outstanding performance, and it is still highly successful in some projects. The only problem with this screed is the prolonged time it takes to dry.

Dry screed is a mixture of sand, cement and certain additives, which enable the screed to dry more quickly. Sometimes additives are added onsite, while some other times it is a ready mixture. The huge drying gap reflects an increasing preference of Dry Screed among many project managers.
