Screed materials

European codes are in preparation (some published) to cover material properties.

BS EN 13892, Methods of test for screed materials, is divided into a number of parts. Those that have been issued are listed below:


Part 1: Sampling, making and curing specimens for test
Part 2: Determination of flexural and compressive strength
Part 3: Determination of wear resistance Bohne
Part 4: Determination of wear resistance BCA
Part 5: Determination of wear resistance to rolling wheel of screed material for wearing
Part 6: Determination of surface hardness
Part 7: Determination of wear resistance to rolling wheel of screed material with floor coverings
Part 8: Determination of bond strength.

BS EN 13318, Screed materials and floor screeds Definitions, has been published.

EN 13813, Screed materials and floor screeds Screed material - Properties and requirements, has been published.
