March 2021 saw the first installation of Gypsol Anhydrite screed in Perth, Western Australia!
The project, a 150 square metre new build home, was supplied and installed by Metsel Mortars on Saturday 6th March. This project is a culmination of months of collaboration between Metsel and LKAB Minerals to ensure Gypsol Binder was successfully exported and installed in the new market.
A successful floor screed installation
As with all screeds, extreme heat and cold can have an effect on placement and drying times. Despite temperatures of 32 degrees on the day of installation, they were able to successfully place Gypsol classic, owing to the level of insulation in the building and Metsel’s effective control of the internal temperature. The result was an excellent surface finish.
A first for Gypsol
Predominantly a UK product, the export of Gypsol binder to the Australian market is a first for the team.
Alan Jackson, Commercial Manager for Gypsol Screeds in the UK and Ireland commented ‘This is an exciting next step for the Gypsol team! As far as we know, this is the first installation of any type of Anhydrite screeds in Australia. We are looking forward to many more projects in the future!’
