Supporting Products

KWIKscreed

Self-levelling screed 20Kg

KWIKscreed is a fast setting sand-cement based screed for repairing imperfect or damaged concrete or other cement-based floor surfaces.

Suggested Applications

The KWIKscreed self-levelling compound is to be poured on to the required surface. A steel notched trowel can be used to fill spaces, increase surface area or reduce thickness/high spots. Once installed, allow the self-levelling compound to cure without further adjustment as this will weaken the installation and lead to premature failure.

Insiders Tip

Do not install on a loose and or crumbling floor, as the self-levelling compound is unable to integrate into a poor substrate.

Only mix one bag at a time, to ensure that the product has had time to develop the necessary performance characteristics.

KWIKgrout

1kg – 5kg – 20kg

Is a cement-based powdered tile grout for interior and exterior use available in light grey, white, dove grey, charcoal, light brown, brown & ivory. Coverage will vary depending on the application with a minimum setting time of 24 Hours.
