The Ronafix screed required laying with a thickness varying from 6mm up to 100mm. When laying a modified SBR screed correct batching and mixing is essential. Each component must be properly measured by weight or volume and mixed to provide a mortar with the lowest possible water content but sufficient liquid to allow good compaction and a good surface finish. The mix design was carried out by a Cemplas pump operative and pumped through a Putzmeister screed pump.

 ‘Ronacrete has a strong relationship with Cemplas resulting from  the professionalism of the Cemplas team; from their support and communications through to their representation and application of Ronacrete products. We are proud to have worked together on the refurbishment of this iconic building’.

Daren Chambers, UK Sales & Marketing Manager, Ronacrete Limited.
