Fast Drying / Rapid Drying Screeds

At Harris Floor Screeding we pride ourselves in offering all floor screed systems giving our customers to review options to find out what is best for their projects. Fast drying screeds are becoming more and more popular in the industry allowing you to install floor coverings much sooner than using a standard traditional or liquid screed as well as offering a higher comprehensive strength of C60. RETANOL XTREME is a factory batched floor screed that has been designed to allow the release of trapped water in the matrix of the screed to maximise the hydration of the cement thereby giving faster drying times, increased strength and lower porosity. RETANOL XTREME is suitable for fully bonded, unbonded, floating and under heated screeds with or without fibre reinforcement. RETANOL XTREME is suitable for use in high traffic areas such as airports, shopping centres and hospitals where a high strength (Category A) screed is required and can also be used for domestic properties. This screed is batched to produce a levelling screed that is capable of receiving floor coverings such as tiles, wood, carpet, vinyl and other toppings listed in BS8203;2001.


Allowing you to apply tiles after 48 hours and all over floor coverings after 72 hours.
