Full-On Performance with BAL

BAL Pourable One

When the weather gets cold, you need an adhesive that sets quickly – while also giving you longer working and open times. 

BAL Rapid-Flex One is a high-performance S1 tile adhesive that provides fixers with superior qualities to get the job done on time and on budget – even in the winter when adhesives take longer to set.

Fast, strong and flexible, BAL Rapid-Flex One is an ultimate all-round adhesive with extended 30 minutes open time and 60 minutes working time – giving fixers speed but crucially all the control – and is still ready to grout in just three hours.

Formulated with FST for enhanced performance, a super smooth consistency provides easier and faster spreading.  With superb flexibility and just one white colour for use on any installation, this means it can be used on most jobs – even with water-sensitive natural stone tiles. 

As well as a high-performance formulation, BAL Rapid-Flex One comes with BAL’s unique 25-year product guarantee. This means when used correctly, BAL Rapid-Flex One won’t let you down. 

Every adhesive, grout, preparation product, sealant: every single product bearing the BAL name is guaranteed for a quarter of a century, subject to the usual ‘correct use’ conditions.

Alex Underwood, Head of Marketing at BAL said: “BAL Rapid-Flex One ticks all the boxes as an all-in-one rapid-setting adhesive that gives fixers and contractors everything they need for perfect tiling at the great value cost of a standard grey flexible adhesive.

“With improved flexibility and deformability, BAL Rapid-Flex One really needs to be seen to be believed – so take it for a test drive today.”

BAL Pourable One

When tiling with large format or natural stone floor tiles – you may want to consider BAL Pourable One.

BAL Pourable One is – as the name suggests – a pourable floor tile adhesive that is perfect for fixing natural stone and large format ceramic, porcelain and terrazzo floor tiles.

Like all the ‘One’ range of BAL enhanced tile adhesives, BAL Pourable One is available as just a white adhesive – meaning that only one bag is needed – making it the perfect solution for floor tile installations of most tile types. 

Suitable for internal or external use and dry or wet environments, BAL Pourable One can be grouted in only three hours for fast-track installations. Because it uses less water in the mix, it is recommended for stone and tiles that are water sensitive – such as limestone and marble. 

BAL Pourable One is has a smooth rheology making it easy to mix in the bucket, easy to apply – by simply pouring it out onto the floor - and then smooth and easy to spread.

With a pot life of 45 minutes before it goes off in the bucket it allows plenty of time to fix and spread large mixes, to reduce both waste of materials and speed up the installation time.

Because of its fluid formulation, as well as being trowelled easily, 100% coverage can easily be achieved even without the need to back butter (on flat, level surfaces), giving fixers confidence of a solid bed - first time, every time – and saving on the timely and laborious need to check coverage beneath every tile.  

A key benefit of the product is its suitability to be used at 25mm bed depth in one application, making it ideal for patch repair and for use with uncalibrated stone or uneven floors. BAL Pourable One can also be used similarly on uneven floor substrates up to 25mm depth (recommended maximum of ½m² areas) without the need for a separate leveller – meaning you can use just an adhesive and save on the leveller.
