BAL Flexbone 2Easy is a unique uncoupling mat that requires no adhesive between the matting and the substrate. Because the matting is loose-laid the preparation required is greatly reduced - in fact if the floor is solid & level all you need to do is sweep! That means you don't need to remove residue, bitumen or laitance or prime the floor prior to installation and you can start tiling onto contaminated, stained or cracked screeds or bitumen straight away. You can even use it over new anhydrite or sand & cement screeds that are not cured as the moisture will evaporate through covering joints.
Flexbone 2Easy is suitable for light commercial and domestic projects such as hallways, kitchens, bathrooms, office walkways, department store concessions, trade show stands and car showrooms (if cars are moved and not driven). Using Flexbone 2Easy saves up to 2kg per m2 in adhesive when compared to bonded mats. It can be used with underfloor heating, on timber floors and existing load bearing floor surfaces.
BAL Flexbone Varied uncoupling matting is a high load-bearing and waterproof membrane that accommodates lateral movement. The unique bone structure of the matting means that less adhesive is needed and installation is 30% faster - saving you time and money. It can be used on floors internally and in wet environments like wet rooms and walk-in showers with no additional tanking. The matting also features patented GripLock technology for the best adhesive shear strength (50% better than other cavity mats) which provides for higher levels of lateral movement.
