Using Speedskim Technology™ – Latex Screeding
To achieve the best possible results from your Speedskim® Flexible Plastering Rule please follow the simple how to guide below. If there is anything that you would like to ask please use the contact us page and we will be happy to run through any aspects.
Latex Screeding – Best Practice
- Knock up and pour Latex Screed as you would normally.
- Immediately after pouring apply your Speedskim® and spread fast. As Speedskim® is so light and flexible this allows accelerated distribution and precise feathering resulting in a faster more consistent finish. Speedskim® allows larger areas to be completed with ease.
- Leave to dry as normal. Speedskim® enhances finish and levelling qualities reducing the need for any further preparation.
Your Speedskim® blade can alternate between latex screed and skim-coat plaster applications. To achieve best results it is recommended that when going from latex screed back to skim-coat you lightly apply either emery or flower paper to smooth and revive the blade edge. Course sandpaper is NOT recommended.
