LKAB Minerals

Overview

The LKAB Minerals Group is internationally active in the market of industrial minerals. The group is part of the Swedish company LKAB, one of the world’s leading producers of highly upgraded iron ore products providing millions of tonnes annually to a worldwide market. LKAB Minerals develop, produce and market minerals customised for industry worldwide. Sustainability is at the core of LKAB and we are proud to have been awarded Gold Ecovadis status for the past two years. LKAB Minerals supply the Civil Engineering and Construction sector with Gypsol Anhydrite binder, an environmentally friendly flowing floor screed. Gypsol is available in 11 grades, making it ideal for any project from large scale constructions, to home renovations. It can be placed over underfloor heating or at a depth of just 15mm and can be sanded to create an architecturally rustic finished floor. Alongside, we provide the construction sector with GGBS, an environmentally friendly CEM 1 replacement; and MagnaDense, a high density aggregate providing concrete densities of up to 4 tonnes per cubic metre. MagnaDense has a proven use in radiation shielding applications, bridge constructions and wherever additional density is required. It is also ideal where there are restrictions on space.

Sustainable and High Performance Liquid Screeds
The purpose of this presentation is to introduce, inform, educate and offer guidance on liquid screed applications, key features and specification points of interest in relation to the overall floor construction. We firstly consider the various types of liquid screeds (and binders used to produce these products) which are in a rapid phase of growth within the industry. Secondly we aim to show how architects can best consider how these screeds can support their design and function criteria of screeds/ floors. This is backed up with references to accreditations, case studies illustrating some areas of architectural interest and keynote explanations of function. We also within this presentation try to make appropriate references to the sustainability of these products, within context of product and also in overall construction.

This material aims to increase understanding of:
- What are screed binders and types available for the specifier
- Otions to specify for particular criteria; eg High rise, acoustic, visual finishes to floors with screed in mind
- Contextualizing how a high performance screed will perform within an architect's design
- Options to reduce CO2, propose more sustainable and safe products.

This CPD can be delivered to you live and remotely.
