Perfect adhesive for new screeds

BAL Green Screed Adhesive dramatically reduces necessary screed drying times, making it ideal for tiling onto new screeds against tight deadlines. Laying tiles before a screed is completely dry means risking drying shrinkage movement. This can cause lost adhesion, bulging tiles or cracking tiles or grout.

According to BS 5385, a new cement/sand screed should be allowed at least three weeks to dry before tiling starts. For new concrete,: the Standard recommends at least six weeks for it to dry. Sometimes, even a few days is too long to wait.

A tiler using BAL Green Screed Adhesive can avoid weeks of delay. Just one day of drying is needed before tiling onto new cement/sand, saving 20 days. With concrete, just seven days of drying are required, a five-week time saving.

BAL Green Screed Adhesive suits most tile types, including porcelain and can be used indoors and outside. It has strong water and frost resistance and is ideal for both dry and wet areas, including swimming pools and showers. As with all BAL products, it carries a full 25-year guarantee and is available nationwide from more than 500 authorised distributors.
