Architects and specifiers are set to benefit from the latest RIBA-approved CPD seminar from tile adhesive, grout and preparation products manufacturer Norcros Adhesives. The new seminar covers one of the key current topics of interest to specifiers of floor preparation products, namely how to deal with anhydrite screeds.

Called Solutions for Tiling to Anhydrite Screeds, the new seminar has been specifically developed for architects, specifiers and large contractors to provide important information for construction industry professionals who require guidance on these types of screeds and who also need to keep their CPD qualifications up to date. There is a lack of published detail readily available on the subject of anhydrite screeds and customers frequently contact the Norcros technical department seeking information.

Anhydrite screeds are becoming increasingly popular for larger flooring installations because they offer a number of benefits over sand:cement screeds. Their main advantage is that they can be laid more quickly and easily. However they also have a number of disadvantages, mainly associated with the requirement for an extended drying time. The Norcros CPD presentation examines all these issues, so that construction specifiers have the unbiased information that they need when working with these types of screed.

The new seminar joins the two existing ones from Norcros Adhesives, which cover the subjects of Tiling Solutions Using Reinforced Polymer Technology for Tiling and Avoiding Common Failures when Specifying Wall and Floor Tiling.

All Norcros seminars can be delivered in a variety of different ways. As well as traditional seminars, the CPDs can also be viewed online via YouTube or the company’s website.

“Covering a key topical issue for our industry, the new anhydrite screeds seminar will be of considerable interest to architects and specifiers who are obliged to maintain their knowledge levels in key areas,” says Mandy Searle, technical services manager at Norcros Adhesives. “Its addition to our portfolio also enhances the credibility of Norcros Adhesives as an authoritative provider of RIBA-accredited CPD material for the industry.”

The Norcros seminars are accessible from the company’s website at www.norcros-adhesives.com. More information is available from Mandy Searle – Email: msearle@norcros-adhesives.com or Tel: 01782 524140
