The fast and versatile screed

Finding the right screed for the job is never easy.  Screeds have different characteristics and when you factor in project timelines and budget constraints, this can make even the most straightforward screeding application a challenge.  Traditional cement screeds can be slow and labour-intensive so aren’t always up to the job.  Whether new build or refurbishment, Permascreed is the mastic asphalt screed offering a walk-on drying time of just one hour – a speedy and cost-effective way to level or create drainage falls on flat roofs, walkways and car parks.

When a screed needs to be trafficked or overlaid quickly, Permascreed offers a rapid cooling process and a fast-track application.  It provides an ideal solution for busy sites where other trades are waiting to get to work and on exposed sites where the Great British weather can bring construction to a standstill.

As Permascreed has zero water content, it eliminates the time taken for moisture to evaporate in traditional screeds. Also, there is no risk of cement stained water getting into the underlying structure. With the screed thickness itself up to 80% less than traditional materials, it is also much lighter than conventional materials and ideal for both refurbishments and new builds.

This truly versatile screed can be used in a variety of applications and laid onto primed concrete, glass fibre tissue or torch-on glass-based bituminous membranes. Made from selected bitumens, limestone filler and specially graded aggregates, its flexibility and fast curing time enable the applicator to achieve precise falls quickly and more efficiently.

Permascreed can be supplied directly to site in purpose-built, hot-charge transporters and can be applied at a wide range of thicknesses and falls, typically on in-situ and pre-cast construction bases.

Faced with budgetary and time pressures, Permascreed offers contractors a solution which combines the reliability, simple application and proven performance of mastic asphalt with modern construction techniques.  So why not turn to Permascreed? It’s a highly efficient and highly versatile roofing solution for when there’s a need for speed.
