Resin screeds are trowel applied and are designed for areas of heavy wear, that doesn’t mean that they can’t be decorative and a variety of aggregates e.g. quartz, coloured recycled glass and various other systems can combine to give a very tough finish with a highly aesthetic appearance. Most of these types are around 4-6mm in thickness.

They are available in a wide range of colours and can be designed to be anti slip if required making them ideal for commercial kitchens, retail outlets etc
