Quickset Cement

For use in screeds and render mortars

Technical Data
  • A fast-setting, rapid-strength, low shrinkage cement for use in screeds and renders, Quickset Cement accepts foot traffic in just three hours and is suitable for installations such as swimming pools or underfloor heating. It has a number of benefits including a 60 minute pot life, and 80% less shrinkage than a standard OPC screed. Quickset Cement is water/frost resistant when set and can be pumped for fast track installation.

    BAL Quickset Cement provides outstanding on-site performance, accepting foot traffic in just three hours, allowing other trades on-site sooner. Crucially on key installations significant time savings are made compared to using traditional OPC screeds, for example three weeks on swimming pool installations or 15 days for under floor heating. Developed for easy use on commercial site, it’s improved flexural strength allows for leaner mix ratios in certain installations helping to reduce project costs.
