Gypsol Rapide Screed launched

News June 3, 2019

Our Gypsol Rapide is a unique and highly innovative faster-drying screed. Mainly because it is developed using anhydrite, specially graded sands and selected additives to create a free-flowing, self-compacting and self-smoothing floor screed.

Quick-drying and installation

The screed has a drying time of as little as 14 days (condition dependent). Therefore, Gypsol Rapide dries in a fraction of the time of traditional anhydrite or cementitious screeds.

Gypsol Rapide offers rapid installation, covering up to 2,000m2 per day. On top of that, it is independently tested to ensure quality and consistency. LKAB Minerals range of screeds has third-party accreditation and is available from trained installers.

Exciting Gypsol Rapide launch

“This is an exciting step for the Gypsol brand and LKAB Minerals,” says John Fry, Commercial Manager for Gypsol. “The launch of our Rapide screed will ensure we service the ever-changing needs of our customers. And also allow for rapid installation in challenging construction projects.”

Customer support and innovation

LKAB Minerals range of Gypsol products is continuously evolving. First of all, we invest continuously in the R&D and improvement of new and existing products. And secondly, the company offer ongoing support to customers in the development and installation of Gypsol products.

In addition, we provide training to installers, to ensure they install their products correctly. Technical support is available through LKAB Minerals specialist UK team. Additionally, we can provide product testing in the interim until we established independent testing.
