• K-Screed Still Going Strong at Hong Kong Airport

    22 October 2011

    First installed over 15 years ago, Flowcrete’s Isocrete K-Screed, a proprietary semi-dry high strength screed, is still going strong at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) after millions of passengers have walked all over it.

    FlowcreteNow the third busiest international passenger airport in the world, HKIA was built between 1992 and 1998 to an innovative design conceived by leading International architects Foster & Partners. In the largest screed contract ever awarded at the time, a total of 250,000 m2 of Isocrete K-Screed was applied.

    Alan Blay, Managing Director of Flowcrete Hong Kong says, “HKIA is an excellent example of the long-term durability and integral strength of K-Screed. Because K-Screed forms such a strong and durable sub-surface, final floor finishes last much, much longer.

    This significantly minimises the need for costly refurbishments down the line.” The Airport Authority has commented that the flooring has certainly stood the test of time and the decision to opt for the high strength screed back then has paid off with the original floor coverings still looking good today.
