‘To Lightly Flo’!

“The construction industry is often thought of as slow to respond to changes, however the development of self leveling floor screed quickly gained acceptance for its speed of laying, drying, ease of labour and, that holy grail of building – a level surface. Concrete is heavy stuff though, and the self leveling screeds currently available often require a correspondingly robust structure to support them. The development of innovative LiteFlo, a lightweight alpha hemihydrate calcium sulphate floor screed from SMET changes that. Made from specially selected aggregates which make it 30% lighter than conventional flowing screeds, it is pump applied and is ideal for timber frame builds, suspended timber floors, renovation projects and for over acoustic or thermal insulation. The company supply nationwide with an approximate cost of £30/€38 sqm and an average house takes just half a day to complete.

LiteFlo lightweight flowing calcium sulphate screed is supplied to site in pre-mixed bags or site silos. LiteFlo is designed for application at thicknesses of between 20 and 90 mm. LiteFlo® complies with EN 13813: 2002. and is CE marked.

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 (polythene), as a floating floor and is particularly suited in conjunction with underfloor heating or cavity floors.

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.
