What to do if screed is not drying.

What are you currently doing to dry it and what external factors could be changed to improve the environment?

Creating the ideal conditions for drying screed is possible with some simple steps. Small changes can make a huge difference. Making the room airtight by closing windows and doors, getting the ambient temperature up to the screed’s ideal drying conditions, creating good airflow around the room and managing the humidity will dry the screed more effectively.

These changes can all be created during a Force Drying Programme.

Specialist Electric Boilers can be used to create ambient heat in conjunction with an existing heating system through the radiators or they can be connected to the Under Floor Heating and used in a series of processes such as to dry, and commission and condition the screed.

Air moving fans can be introduced to circulate air around the room, moving dry air over the screed and moving humid air away. Pairing these up with a high-powered dehumidifier is the best way to manage the humidity within the room and create the ideal conditions for drying most screeds effectively, usually a constant ambient temperature of 20 degrees Celsius and an atmospheric humidity of 60% throughout the drying process.

Creating these ideal conditions for screed drying is relatively simple but relying on weather conditions to create them for you can really let the project’s schedule slip away even during the summer months. Using a Force Drying Programme can create the ideal conditions for drying screed and push the project on.
