What Is Agilia Self Leveling Screed?
Before carpet, tile or hardwood can be installed a smooth, flat surface must be present. Agilia Self Leveling Screed is a thin layer of cement that goes on top of the construction grade subfloor. Screed is always used in flooring with radiant heating.
Agilia Screed was developed as an alternative to traditional self leveling cements that were sand based and come in bags ready to be mixed on site.
The problem with sand based mixtures are:
- Longer application times
- Lack of viscosity means air pockets can form resulting in a loss of heating efficiency
- Needs to be carried to site (vs. pumping it)
- More product & thicker floor
- No consolidation means less skilled labor and fewer tools required
