Gypsol Rapide Screed Applications

Gypsol Rapide is an ideal floor screed for all construction types. This self-compacting screed can be used from a minimum depth of just 15mm unbonded and 35mm floating. It provides the perfect subfloor to any floor covering including resin, tiles, and vinyl.

Suitable for high strength applications, Rapide is a popular choice for a range of applications including masonry, steel frame and timber frame construction projects.

With its high thermal response, Gypsol Rapide is often used in conjunction with underfloor heating systems to produce an energy efficient heating system, and screed depth can be reduced to increase thermal efficiency.

Only a lightweight dappling bar is required to finish it, with no secondary compaction required, reducing project time and reducing the physical impact on staff and contractors.
