## How Much Sand and Cement Do I Need for Screed?

If we assume the screed concrete mixture ratios as 1 kilo of cement, 3 kilos of sand and 1 kilo of water, it equals 5 units. 1 cubic meter of quality screed concrete weighs approximately 2400 kilos. 1/5 of this, that is, 480 kilos, is cement.

Let’s say 5 cm of screed concrete will be placed. The volume of 1 square meter surface screed with a thickness of 5 cm is 1/20 cubic meter. **In this situation, 480/20 = 24 kilos of cement is sufficient for 1 square meter screed with a thickness of 5 cm.**
