Introducing ARDEX A 70 GYPFLO, the quick drying, flowable screed in bags.
Time is money in construction and few processes can stall progress as much as a slow setting screed. Delayed projects can lead to increased site running costs, disrupted work schedules and may even incur substantial penalty clauses.
A typical calcium sulphate screed at 40mm will take up to 40 days to dry, and in real UK site conditions, you could be looking at far longer.
Being a bagged screed, it’s also ideal for smaller projects such as extensions and conservatories or when truck mixer access is limited.

Cotswolds Furniture Co
For thirty-one years Bradshaw Flooring have been installing all types of flooring, including hardwood, carpet and decorative vinyl designs, and in 2018 they took on a 750m² refurbishment project for Cotswolds Furniture Co, using a full system of ARDEX products.
The existing subfloor had readings of over 75% RH, so local ARDEX Area Sales Manager, Kevin Gale, recommended the use of ARDEX MVS 95 Moisture Vapour Suppressant, to protect the final floorcovering from residual construction moisture. Kevin commented ‘the subfloor was a clean screed, making ARDITEX CL Levelling and Smoothing Compound the perfect choice for this project. It has excellent flow and application properties, and is walkable in as little as 2 hours.’ To fit the Luxury Vinyl Flooring, Paul from Bradshaw Flooring, used ARDEX AF 145 Pressure Sensitive Flooring Adhesive. Paul commented ‘this was a large project; we had to work around other contractors so the working time of this product was great, and it was really easy to apply.’ Paul continued ‘We have used ARDEX products for years, they’re tried and tested, and have never let us down, and with excellent support from the sales and technical teams ARDEX was our only choice for this project’.
