Traditional floor screed basically consists of sand & cement mixed at a ratio of between 3 to 5 parts sand & 1 part cement. In the majority of cases 4 to 1 is quite sufficient.
In the past reinforement was achieved by using Hex wire (chicken wire) or D49 mesh. In the early 90’s Polypropylene Fibres (PPF) started to become very popular, and today PPF is the most common used reinforcement for traditional floor screed. This is the best way of getting a flat finished floor over a concrete slab or creating falls for wet rooms.
