Find The One With New BAL Tile Adhesives

Last year BAL launched two new adhesives that they hope will reduce the number of products you need to keep on hand. An established adhesive manufacturer, BAL have been providing tiling solutions in the UK for over 50 years and are trusted by a range of industry professionals including tilers, contractors, architects and specifiers. Both Rapid-Flex One and Pourable One have already become fast favourites with tilers, but if you haven’t had a chance to try them out yet read on for more information.

BAL Rapid-Flex One

Rapid-Flex One is a high performance S1 tile adhesive that is super flexible and contains BAL’s Fibre Strand Technology (FST). It’s been developed to help you on the job with a 30 minute open time – 3x longer than most rapidsets – and 60 minutes working time – 2x longer than most alternatives. Not only are the open and working times improved, but it can be grouted after just 3 hours and has a super smooth consistency for easy mixing and application.

Available in new white technology, Rapid-Flex can be used with most types of tile and stone, both internally and externally. It’s also suitable for most backgrounds including those with limited movement, underfloor heating and areas of total immersion – both internally and externally.

BAL Pourable One

Pourable One is a rapid-setting and highly flexible tile adhesive that can be used to fix large and small format ceramics, porcelain and vitrified tiles, most natural stones and terrazzo. It can be used internally and externally in wet and try environments including areas of total immersion and is also perfect for use with underfloor heating, heated screeds or areas with limited movement or vibration.

Just like Rapid-Flex One, Pourable One is only available in white but has been formulated for use with all colour tiles and grouts. Ideal for fixing large format tiles and natural stone to internal or external screeds, particularly those of uneven thickness such as slate or on difficult backgrounds which may usually cause cracking or de-bonding. It can be used up to 25mm bed thickness in one application and sets in 3 hours, no matter the thickness.
