Granolithic screed is a floor topping which is placed on to an existing hard base usually a concrete slabto form a durable top surface.

Granolithic screed is used for applications where the surface needs to be hard-wearing like concrete, yet with a smoother finish. So, it can be used in a wide range of industrial flooring applications, such as food processing plants, industrial manufacturing and engineering, plus external pavements and ports, to name but a few. Some granolitihc are available in colours, so you are not limited to grey!

Consider what the floor will be used for, and what hazards might occur. For example, if the floor needs to be cleaned regularly, to comply with hygiene requirements, make sure the screed granolthic been designed to withstand regular contact with cleaning detergents.

Check that the aggregate particles in the screed have been graded, so they are about the same size. This will reduce the chance of air bubbles forming in the mix, which can weaken the screed.

Consider the temperature range for the building, and ensure the screed will keep its properties in those conditions. For freezer or furnace environments there may be extreme temperatures. Please take a look at our product page for Induritour granolithic screed.
