Density Typical Test Results Density kg/m3 Fresh wet un-compacted 1,850 – 2,000 Compacted set and air dried 2,000 – 2,200
Typical Drying Times Allow approximately 5 - 7 days per 25mm of thickness. If the screed is very thick, or the concrete base has an excessive moisture content, this time should be increased.
High humidity or low temperatures will also delay the drying out process. As the drying time indicated applies from completion of any curing operation, the flooring contractor must check the moisture content of the screed before laying the floor finish.
