Capital Concrete Expands Its Low-carbon Screed Network

From its new recently opened Cricklewood Plant, Capital Concrete has been supplying Cemfloor - a high-performance, free-flowing and self-compacting liquid screed which has lower embodied carbon. While a few miles down the road at their Wembley Plant, Capital Concrete has recently installed new facilities to produce Gypsol Flowing Screed, a gypsum based, lower carbon liquid screed.

Luke Smith, Managing Director of Capital Concrete explains: ”It is essential that we anticipate and respond to evolving demands of our customers, which is why we are expanding our flowing screed network in London and offering low carbon alternatives to traditional products.”

Cemfloor can be used in various settings, and due to its ability to be installed at thinner depths it has a lower carbon content compared to traditional screeds as less material is used. Gypsol Flowing Screed is gypsum based, and offers a reduction in embodied carbon of up to 85% when compared with traditional screeds.

Both materials can be used in domestic and commercial applications and have been supplied to projects such as Admirality Arch in London, where Gypsol Screed has been used for flooring in the landmark building, and in Deanston Wharf, where over 4000m3 of Cemfloor has been supplied by Capital Concrete for use in the construction of an apartment building.
