Our unique German-made, factory-produced, pumpable, superior-quality LiteFlo® Alpha Hemihydrate screed is based on calcium sulphate and selected lightweight aggregates.
LiteFlo® Lightweight Flowing Screed is designed for application at thicknesses of between 20 and 90 mm and is particularly suitable for application over timber suspended floors, timer-frame houses, and in high-rise buildings and apartment blocks.
LiteFlo® is suitable for floors in homes, offices, public buildings, and places exposed to similar loads. LiteFlo® may be applied as a levelling screed directly onto a load-bearing floor, unbonded on a separating barrier (polyethene), as a floating floor and can be used in conjunction with underfloor heating or cavity floors. However, when using LiteFlo® in combination with underfloor heating, it should be noted that LiteFlo® has a low thermal conductivity.
LiteFlo® should be covered with a floor finish such as tiles, linoleum, parquet, cork, or carpet. If a cement-based adhesive or smoothing compound is required the surface of the screed must first be sealed, using an appropriate acrylic primer/sealer.
SMET LiteFlo® is unique, in that it’s the first pumpable lightweight flowing screed available. It’s made from specially selected aggregates, which makes it 30% lighter than conventional flowing screeds and 70% lighter than sand and cement, meaning less material is required per m2.
LiteFlo® complies with EN 13813: 2002, is CE-marked and is available in 27Kg bags or bulk silos.
Benefits of SMET LiteFlo® Lightweight Flowing Floor Screed
- Pumpable – first of its kind available.
- Lightweight – high yield, 43kg per m2 at 40mm thickness.
- 30% weight reduction compared to standard calcium sulphate screeds.
- 70% weight reduction compared to traditional sand and cement.
- Absolutely ideal for application in high-rise buildings, over timber suspended floors, timber-frame houses and in new builds and renovations.
- Smooth laitance-free finish.
- For application at thicknesses of between 20 and 90mm.
- Under Floor Heating – full encapsulation.
- Perfectly level floors – every time.
- Installed nationwide by Smet Supported Partners.
- Sustainable – as this calcium Sulphate binder naturally embodies less carbon than a cement-based binder.
- German made.
- CE EN 13813: 2002
