12,000 square metres of Flowcrete’s fast-drying, high-strength, self-levelling screed system, Isocrete 1500, have been installed at a prestigious development in London’s sought-after, landmark Mayfair district.
Isocrete 1500 was specified to deliver a solid platform along with excellent strength and performance drying times.
The self-levelling screed system can be walked on in as little as two hours, speeding up construction schedules and allowing follow-on trades early access to the site, therefore no longer having to wait days or weeks for the screed to cure. It can be both hand (0 – 20 mm) or pump applied (4 – 20 mm) for the easy levelling of concrete floors.
For pumped application, at least 8 mm average thickness would be a typical expectation on a reasonably level base. Around 2,000m2 of Isocrete 1500 can be pumped per day, under suitable conditions.
Isocrete 1500 has been designed for primarily for new construction where finishes such as carpets, ceramic tiles, vinyl, linoleum wood block or cork need to be applied quickly. It may be used as a screed to receive an epoxy resin finish in areas taking light traffic.
A second system from Flowcrete, Isopol SBR, was also used in the spa and swimming pool area on accounts of it moisture tolerance.
Isopol SBR is a styrene butadiene polymer latex screed additive and bonding agent. It is used to produce polymer modified wearing screeds for heavy duty and industrial flooring and for rapid drying, levelling screeds (minimum 10 mm thickness) to receive various types of floor finishes.
The project completion of Clarges Mayfair comes at an exciting time for Flowcrete UK, having recently secured ISO 14001:2015 environmental management certification for manufacturing processes at its headquarters in Cheshire as well as having won ‘Large Commercial Project of the Year’ at the 2017 FeRFA Awards for the company’s work at St Fagans National History Museum in Cardiff.
