SMET launches exciting new fast drying screed

S

MET has responded to the demand for fast-drying screed with the launch of a high-performance, innovative flooring solution, Sopro Rapidur FE 678. This rapidset, self-levelling screed is walkable within three hours and is ideal for underfloor heating systems. Joris SMET, Director of SMET Building Products Ltd, said, “It’s not often we see a game-changer in this longestablished industry. However, our German manufacturing partner, Sopro, have really done it this time. The unique properties of this pumpable, rapid-set screed really set it apart, and it is particularly useful for thin UFH systems, fast-track and tightly scheduled screed laying.” Rapidur FE 678 Self Levelling Screed is a polymer-modified, ready-to-use dry mix for the production of rapid-set screeds, allowing early flooring installation. At Grade CT-C25-F5 to DIN EN 13 813, it’s suitable for heated screeds, bonded screeds and unbonded screeds (on separating or insulation layer). It can be used as a base for all types of floor covering (eg ceramic, natural stone, textile and elastic flooring), and is particularly suitable for a wide range of thin-coat heating systems. Uniquely there’s also the option of final polishing to a

contemporary, visually appealing terrazzostyle surface. Conveniently, no extra sand needs to be added on site, and the pumped screed offers excellent workability and hardened mortar properties, thanks to Sopro’s Mikrodur technology.

UNRIVALLED PERFORMANCE Rapidur FE 678 Self Levelling Screed has minimum shrinkage and therefore does not curl. It fully encapsulates the underfloor heating pipes, has a high thermal conductivity and can be installed in significantly reduced thicknesses. This allows thicker insulation to be used under the screed, resulting in better thermal insulating values or U-values. The screed gains heat rapidly and transports heat to the surface of the screed into the air, resulting in an efficient response to room temperature changes. Thin floating self-levelling screed is more energy efficient, responding quickly to changes in room temperatures. Traditional thick screeds cannot respond as efficiently to, for example, solar gain in the afternoon or when a fireplace is lit in the winter. This ineffective response (heating/cooling) often leads to a room being too hot or too cold, a problem which is eliminated by the

application of a superior screed such as Rapidur FE 678. T: (NI) 028 3082 5970 or (RoI) 048 3082 5970 E: info@SMETbuildingproducts.com W: www.SMETbuildingproducts.com or www.SMET.ie
