Anybody used Bisem Tile adhesive ?
I have always used BAL tile adhesive when job required a Flexible adhesive,
just ordered 70 m3 of floors tiles for the kitchen floor, and the wholesaler
advises that Bisem "Vitra Flex" is every bit as good as BalFlex. (They
don't stock Bal but would get it for me)
This is a pretty big tiling job so would like to know some feedback on the
Bisem is a reputable brand of tile adhesive that I have used many times
without problems. It should be a fair bit cheaper than Bal. 70 m2 is a BIG
kitchen so you might end up saving over a hundred pounds by using Bisem.
If you need any professional tools then have a look at my tilers website
Thanks for the link, once the kitchen is done I have the utility, hall &
cloaks .... total of 145 m2 ....
Tile warehouse looked pleased when I placed the order :-)
I was going to use BAL flex, as there is UFH under the screed ... in your
opinion is the BISEM stuff just as good ?
The other make I have considered is ARDEX.
In other words, "We get a bigger markup on bisem".
Would I trust the word of a salesman as to whether one product is as
good as another without knowing their markups? Nope! Not enough to
risk hundreds of quids worth of tiles on, anyway.
Go with what you know, IMO. BAL is well known, reliable and I've used
it with 100% success.
