Screed drying time and pets!

My extension floor is currently having screed put down over 150mm Celotex insulation. I don't know the thickness, but it would be a few cm of screed I'd say.

We have a cat - he has already tried to get over the wet screed whilst it was in progress. I understand that screed dries about a mm a day. How long would you say it would be before something about 3kg would be ok to walk across?

Let the cat find out on its own. If it gets stuck its not dry enough yet! :mrgreen:
About 4 hours. Then chuck some polythene over the top so mog doesn't end up with alkali burns from the cement. Or shut him/her inside :)
