Liquid screed dries at the same rate as traditional sand and cement screed approx. 1mm/day up to 40mm of thickness. This increases for screeds thicker than 40mm and in poor drying conditions. When the screed is dry the you can tile, but it is important to have all the moisture out of the screed as the tiles will not bond with the adhesive.
