New Gypsol Complete screed binder solution
LKAB Minerals launch pre-blended composite binder, providing a ‘ready-for-use’ solution
LKAB Minerals have launched Gypsol Complete, an anhydrite-based floor screed binder which, when combined with sand and water, provides a free-flowing, self-compacting and self-smoothing floor screed, allowing for the replacement of existing binder systems and helping to reduce transport and packaging by eliminating the need for special additives.
According to LKAB Minerals, the use of Gypsol Complete will increase the speed of screed production on site and ensure that potential site errors during the manufacturing process are negated.
Gypsol Complete is specially designed for use in all 11 Gypsol screed formats, adding choice and flexibility and making it a versatile solution for all applications, from thin screed requirements of just 15mm, to placement over underfloor heating and the provision of aesthetically pleasing finished flooring solutions. It is also available in the Gypsol Rapide format, which offers drying times of as fast as 14 days from installation.
Manufactured from an industry by-product, the Gypsol range of products has a very low embodied CO2 content of just 26.2kg per tonne of material, some 94% less than traditional cementitious screeds.
Gypsol Complete is a direct replacement for existing cementitious screed binders requiring no special additives. Due to its properties, binder contents for most formats can be reduced, providing cost savings whilst also improving the quality and consistency of the screed.
‘This is a pivotal moment for the Gypsol brand and LKAB Minerals,’ remarked Steve Handscomb, commercial director for GGBS and Gypsol. ‘The launch of our Gypsol Complete binder will provide additional speed and flexibility for our customers, who will still benefit from the many other existing advantages Gypsol offers.’
