Floating can be carried out on a wide variety of backgrounds including block, brickwork, clay tiled block, masonry, concrete, expanding metal lath, plasterboard and wooden lath.
If the background is uneven or has deep holes, a dubbing out coat is applied before the ﬂoating coat.
The ﬂoating coat is applied approximately 13mm thick, ruled, straightened then rubbed up and keyed. This is followed after the ﬂoating coat is set with a thin skimming coat of 3mm or less.
The skimming coat is the ﬁnal coat for smoothness. It is not designed to ﬂatten so the background must be ﬂat. Merseryrend ltd can prepare any background ready for the skim coat to leave a perfectly ﬂat, even, smooth, shiny ﬁnish.
This method is formed by using plasterboards and can be ﬁnished using either a skim coat or filling the joints with a joint ﬁller, sanding down and leaving unplastered ready to paint or wallpaper.
The boards come in different sizes and thicknesses to suit the background or job speciﬁcation. You can also choose from a range of sound, acoustic, insulation, moisture and ﬁre protection boards.
The boards can be ﬁxed mechanically depending on the background or by using an adhesive (dot and dab).
A screeded ﬂoor should be capable of withstanding the ﬁnal ﬁnishing ﬂoor (tiling, wooden ﬂoor, carpet). It can act as a ﬁnal wearing surface.
A wide variety of materials can be used, including sand and cement, polymer modiﬁed cement, cold setting resin and granolithic.
There are three systems: monolithic, bonded and unbounded.
Bonded system is the most common system, the ﬂoor being laid on a hardened concrete base which will require preparation before laying. The soundness of the bond is reﬂected in the ﬂoor preparation carried out. The ﬂoor should be laid to a minimum thickness at any one point of 25mm and to achieve this a design thickness of 40mm is recommended.
