Sika launches Schönox Renotex 3D – an industry-first thin-layer screed system for damaged or contaminated flooring
Leading building products manufacturer, Sika, has launched a pioneering thin-layer screed system that can be applied to surfaces beyond the capability of traditional screed solutions and helps avoid the deconstruction and reinstatement of existing subfloors.
With a minimum layer thickness of only 14mm, Schönox Renotex 3D is thought to offer the thinnest floating screed in the world. The hybrid system comprises a patented mesh which in combination with Schönox HS 50 – a low-stress hybrid levelling compound – allows for the application of extremely thin layers of screed. Despite its slender composition, the screed retains a supremely hardwearing and heavy-duty consistency.
Gavin White, Marketing and Product Manager at Sika said: “Schönox Renotex 3D is another Sika product that lives up to our reputation for innovation. We believe it will prove itself an asset to customers and the construction industry as a whole, as it provides the versatility, strength and support that is out of reach to most screed systems.”
The Schönox Renotex 3D’s hybrid cement and gypsum composition inspires its rapid-install, fast-curing, super-strong performance, enabling it to be walkable in just two hours and flooring-ready in two days. Pumpable, with minimum shrinkage and excellent self-levelling properties, the system’s high load and live load capacity makes it ideal for contaminated flooring or ageing concrete unable to take traditional coatings.
Other benefits of the Schönox Renotex 3D include:
- Improved heat transmission for underfloor heating
- Mininmises thickness and weight with fire insulation
- Provides impact and sound reduction
To coincide with the product’s launch, Sika hosted a live webinar which showcased Schönox Renotex 3D’s pioneering properties. Hosted by members of Sika’s technical team, the one-hour presentation – which included a Q&A session – was warmly received by representatives throughout the construction industry.
Gavin White at Sika added: “The webinar attracted a large audience and the feedback received from attendees on the product and the presentation was extremely positive. I’d like to thank all those who tuned in for their interest, with a special mention also for the Sika team for making it such informative and interesting viewing. I think we’d all agree, though, the real star of the show was Schönox Renotex 3D; an industry-first screed system with the quality and versatility to make good floors that might otherwise be beyond repair.”
