English term or phrase: breakdown (of screed)
Eine Installationsfirma warnt den Kunden, der in einem Duschraum einen Bodenbelag trotz feuchtem "screed" (Estrich?) verlegen lassen will:

"We cannot take responsibility for the breakdown of the screed caused by trapped moisture, or for any other failure associated with the level of moisture content in the screed."

Eine Idee, wie man "breakdown" übersetzt?

Danke,
