BAL

BAL Level Fast is

A Rapid-Setting Floor Levelling Compound With FST

A rapid-setting levelling compound, BAL Level Fast can be walked on after only 30 minutes and tiled on after 45 mins. Level Fast can be used from 2mm to 30mm – including only 3mm over timber. Formulated with Fibre Strand Technology for extra flexibility and strength, there is no need for spike rolling – saving significant project time. With a 10 minute bucket life and 10 minute wet edge, it gives you longer time with each mix.

BAL Level Fast provides the perfect time-saving start to any tiling project with key features including self-smoothing, self-healing and a low-shrinkage technology. With a one-pour technology it can be used over most substrates including concrete, sand:cement screeds, overlaid timber and crucially underfloor heating installations.

SURFACE PREPARATION

Ensure surfaces are dry, sound, and free from grease, dust and any other contamination/barriers to adhesion.

All primed areas should be fully dry.

Ensure direct-to-earth sub-floors incorporate an effective damp proof membrane.

Surface regularity:
Surface Regularity is defined as the deviation in height of the surface of a flooring layer over short distances in a local area. In simpler terms, it is the ‘flatness’ or ‘measure of unevenness’ of the screeded surface.

ClassMAXIMUM PERMISSABLE DEVIATION - 2M STRAIGHT EDGE (MM)APPLICATION
SR13mmRecommended for direct
fixing of tiles and slabs with a tile adhesive

In wet areas: Allow a minimum of 24 hours before waterproofing BAL LEVEL FAST with BAL WATERPROOFING KIT FOR SHOWERS, BAL WP1 TANKING SYSTEM or BAL TANK-IT.

SUITABLE SURFACES include:

Asphalt (suitable grade e.g. flooring)

Must be of a suitable grade, be clean, in sound condition (without brittleness, softening. etc.) and have adequate cohesive strength, a natural float finish and laid on a firm rigid base.

Clean thoroughly to remove surface dirt using warm water and a suitable detergent. Remove all detergent residues with clean water. No priming is needed.
Ensure that surface is sufficiently regular to suit bedding depths of BAL LEVEL FAST.

Apply leveller as required, minimum 3mm to maximum 6mm.

Concrete; cement:sand screeds

Must be fully cured and free from efflorescence, laitance, dirt, polished concrete and other barriers to adhesion. Remove by the use of suitable mechanical methods. Allow the following minimum drying times:

– Concrete: 6 weeks
– Cement:sand screed: 3 weeks

Absorbent cement:sand screeds and concrete.
Prime with BAL PRIME APD pre-diluted 1:1 with clean water. Allow to dry.

Low-absorbent cement:sand and concrete.
Dampen with clean water before laying BAL LEVEL FAST.

Ceramic tile adhesive residues

Remove as much adhesive as possible.
Ensure all remaining residual adhesive is soundly bonded. No priming is needed.

Ready for immediate use. Pot life at 20°C: approx. 10-15 minutes.

NOTE: Pot life/setting time will vary slightly with temperature: higher temperatures = shorter; lower temperatures = longer.

Fibre reinforced cement boards and lightweight tile backer boards
Install boards to BS 5385 – i.e. moisture-resistant boards screwed to seasoned timber or suitable proprietary framework at maximum 300mm centres or as per the board manufacturer’s recommendations. Ensure no fixings protrude.

Some boards may require priming, prior to tiling with a cementitious based tile adhesive. Use a suitable primer
from the BAL range. Please refer to the relevant BAL TECHNICAL DATA SHEETS for further information. IMPORTANT NOTE: Obtain manufacturer’s confirmation that boards are suitable for tiling and for relevant fixing instructions. For further information on other backgrounds and preparation, contact BAL TECHNICAL ADVISORY AND SPECIFICATION SERVICE.

APPLICATION/USAGE

Do NOT use in temperatures below 5°C or in damp conditions.

Small / medium size floorsSteel trowel

BAL Level Fast Usage procedure

  1. Prime the floor surface if required and allow to dry before mixing BAL LEVEL FAST.
  2. Pour mix over sub-floor and spread to required depth using a suitable steel finishing trowel or long hand blade.
  3. Surface should be sufficiently smooth to receive floor coverings without further treatment. Note: Do NOT use a spiked roller; this will pull the fibres to the surface.

If any trowel marks remain rub down before compound has hardened (within 20 – 30 minutes at 20°C).

  1. Allow new floor surface to set. Depending on thickness of application, a 3mm layer BAL LEVEL FAST can receive foot traffic after 30 minutes and receive tiling after 45 minutes.
  2. Movement joints should extend through the tiling, tile bed and levelling screed as per BS 5385: Part 3 recommendation.
  3. Allow BAL LEVEL FAST to set for 24 hours when receive floor finishes such as wooden flooring.
