A Liquid Screed Solution
Cemfloor is a high-performance cement based, free flowing, self-compacting liquid screed developed by McGraths. It can be installed quickly up to 2000m2 per day saving time, foot trafficked in 24-48 hours and dries with minimal drying shrinkage (<0.05%). It is suitable for a variety of applications; commercial and domestic floors, underfloor heating, wet rooms, unbonded or floating floors, new builds or renovations and single or multi story projects. Cemfloor is only installed by fully approved and trained applicators ensuring quality is never compromised.
Since cemfloor is a cement based screed; floor finishes can be applied once the screed has dried to a final moisture content of 2.5%CM. This significantly speeds up the entire build process compared with calcium sulphate screed which require a final moisture content of 0.5%.
Cemfloor boasts exceptional thermal conductivity and is very suitable and responsive to underfloor heating due to the fact it can be laid in very thin sections. This ensures lower energy bills and running costs.
There are three different products available in the Cemfloor range:
Due to the self-compacting properties of Cemfloor Therm, it is specifically designed for use with underfloor heating systems. Cemfloor Therm screed totally encapsulates the underfloor heating pipework and eliminates air voids which ensures optimal heat transfer from the heating pipework to the screed surface. It can also be installed at much thinner depths compared to traditional sand and cement which ensures ultimate controllability of the underfloor heating system.
Cemfloor Non-Heated (NH) is a high-performance cement based, free flowing, self-compacting liquid screed. It can be installed quickly, foot trafficked in 24-48 hours and has minimal drying shrinkage (<0.05%). It is suitable for a variety of applications; new builds or renovations and single or multi story projects. Its drying properties ensure floor coverings of all types can be installed quicker compared to other types of screed available. This significantly speeds up the entire build process.
Cemfloor High Performance Concrete (HPC) is a specially formulated self-compacting concrete that can be used to create stronger and more durable floor slabs with less shrinkage and increased bay sizes to minimise joints, than those constructed with conventional concrete. Higher compressive and flexural strengths are achieved enabling a reduction in slab thickness providing an improved environmental profile. High quality finishes can be achieved without power floating. This product highly suitable for all commercial and industrial projects.
All floor coverings can be applied directly on to Cemfloor, with no need for surface sanding and compatible with all cement based tile adhesives and floor levellers.
