Installing floors over anhydrite, calcium sulphate and gypsum screeds
Anhydrite screeds, also referred to as calcium sulphate or gypsum screeds are becoming more prevalent because they provide a cost effective and eco-friendly alternative to labour intensive sand cement screeds.
UZIN produces a range of mutually compatible calcium sulphate based products such as smoothing compounds and rapid repair mortars as well as primers, adhesives and a unique damp proofing system. UZIN also have solutions to repair cracks and stress induced joints.
The entire range has been rigorously tested and used in a number of projects across the UK.
Damp proofing anhydrite screeds
Waiting for damp anhydrite screeds to dry are now a thing of the past. UZIN has developed a solution to protect calcium sulphate screeds against residual moisture up to 95 % RH. The system allows projects to be completed much quicker and avoids delays.
Crack repair systems
Floors need to be installed quickly and be available to other trades in the shortest time possible. Cracks may develop within anhydrite screeds depending on the climate and site conditions, which can cause problems and delays. Cracks and stress induced joints must be closed prior to the installation of the new floor covering. UZIN’s range of crack repair systems are ideal for remedial repairs and allows screeds to be renovated quickly and easily.
Perfect installation systems.
What makes our product range so special? We think in systems, not just individual products. Therefore you can carry out each step of the system quickly and easily. If you should require any help or advice please contact our technical service team.

Gaia Spa & Gym at Boringdon Hall Hotel
The Grade one listed Boringdon Hall Hotel in Plympton, near Plymouth is a former medieval Manor House where style and luxury meet the Elizabethan architecture. The hotel believed this idyllic location on the edge of Dartmoor would make the perfect destination spa and aimed to create luxurious fitness and wellbeing facilities. Drawing inspiration from nature the spa’s interior and exterior encompass natural materials including wood, stone and glass in order to bring the outdoors in. A high quality finish was therefore paramount.
