Isocrete 1500 Specified for Landmark Residential Development

12,000 square metres of Flowcrete’s fast-drying, high-strength, self-levelling screed system, Isocrete 1500, have been installed at a prestigious development in London’s sought-after Mayfair district – Clarges Mayfair.

Designed by award-winning architects Squire and Partners and built by the main contractor Laing O’Rourke, Clarges Mayfair complements the historic architecture of surrounding Piccadilly landmarks. Set over ten floors, the development features stunning views over Green Park and Buckingham Palace and exceptional private wellness facilities, including a 25 metre swimming pool, fully equipped gymnasium, sauna and steam room, as well as a private cinema screen and 24 hour concierge and security. Isocrete 1500 has been designed primarily for new construction where finishes such as carpets, ceramic tiles, vinyl, linoleum wood block or cork need to be applied quickly. It may be used as a screed to receive an epoxy resin finish in areas taking light traffic. Isocrete 1500 can be walked on in as little as two hours, speeding up construction schedules and allowing follow-on trades early access to the site, therefore no longer having to wait days or weeks for the screed to cure. A second screed system from Flowcrete, Isopol SBR, was also used in the spa and swimming pool area on accounts of it moisture tolerance.  Isopol SBR is a styrene butadiene polymer latex screed additive and bonding agent. It is used to produce polymer modified wearing screeds for heavy duty and industrial flooring and for rapid drying, levelling screeds (minimum 10 mm thickness) to receive various types of floor finishes.
