This type of floor screed may take longer to dry, taking up to 48 hours. Where a quick drying needs to take place, we recommend the use of liquid screeds, but please bear in mind that there are many factors to consider apart from their drying time. They can be utilised in commercial and/or domestic properties.

To help you to decide if the sand and cement screed is the best option for you, we have pulled some information on its applications and advantages.
