New BAL Level Fast: Fast and agile over rough terrain

New BAL Level Fast: Fast and agile over rough terrain

September 2020

Sometimes speed is everything.  How many times do fixers turn up to a job and the floor isn’t ready for tiling – despite assurances?  For small jobs, sometimes you haven’t got time to wait for traditional levelling compounds to set when you’ve only set aside one day for tiling.

However, new BAL Level Fast ultra-quick setting leveller provides the solution, where floors can be ready to tile in just 45 minutes.

Suitable over underfloor heating and timber floors from just a 3mm bed depth, BAL Level Fast is engineered to ensure a longer wet edge (10 minutes) and anti-shrinkage technology to provide the perfect substrate for tiling small domestic projects.

Formulated with Fibre Strand Technology (FST) for improved flexibility and resilience, BAL Level Fast can be used from 2 to 30mm bed depths.  A 10 to 15 minute pot life ensures enough time to mix and use, while self-smoothing and self-healing technology ensures a perfect, flat surface with no cracks or bowing beneath the tiles.

What’s more, a smooth “one pour” formulation with excellent flow makes for ease and speed of installation.

BAL Level Fast keeps the edge for rough terrain and is suitable for most surfaces including sand:cement screeds, overlaid timber, tongue and groove floorboard, single layer ply, tile adhesive residues, existing unglazed tiles or natural stone. It can also go over mastic asphalt, tile backer boards and anhydrite/calcium sulfate screeds.

Alex Underwood, Head of Marketing and Customer Service at BAL said: “Where exceptionally fast-set levelling is required, then look no further than new BAL Level Fast with FST technology.

“Often when a fixer is expecting the floor to be ready for tiling or the area is relatively small, BAL Level Fast will allow a same-day completion.

“Perfect for small domestic projects, it is exceptionally quick drying – you can walk on it from just 30 minutes and begin fixing in  45 minutes – its unique technology gives you 10 minutes to pour and mix your next bag whilst still ensuring a smooth, seamless finish.

“BAL Level Fast exceeds BS EN 13813 CT – C30 – F7 and has been engineered with anti-shrinkage technology meaning it won’t bow or crack during the rapid-hardening process.
“An exceptional flow rate makes for smooth and easy installation.”

Protein free, BAL Level Fast is available in 20kg bags. While it is suitable for some small commercial projects, it isn’t pumpable, so for larger projects BAL still recommends BAL Level Max.

BAL Level Fast is available to order from Monday 28th September 2020. For more information email
