New BAL CTF4 adhesive: perfect for large-format porcelain

BAL CTF4, the market leader’s versatile new white adhesive incorporating PorcelBond Plus technology, is perfect for porcelain tiles. It is particularly suitable for fixing the currently fashionable large-format wall tiles.

BAL CTF4 is also suitable for both interior and exterior applications and in both wet and dry environments. This includes use in showers, swimming pools and other full-immersion areas, subject to the use of appropriate tanking and grouting.

Grouting is possible 16 hours after fixing and the adhesive offers an impressive pot life of up to five hours, with a 20-minute open time for versatility in application. This ‘normal’ setting time is welcomed when fixing in warmer environments, such as the tiling of swimming pools. If BAL CTF4 is supplemented with BAL Admix AD1, pre-diluted 1:1 with water, it becomes suitable for use with underfloor heating. Full application-specific information is available in a Technical Data Sheet.

BAL CTF4 is available in 20 kg sacks from hundreds of distributors nationwide and, as with all products bearing the BAL name, carries a full 25-year guarantee.
