Fixers praise BAL Micromax2
Professional tilers throughout the country have been going online to praise BAL Micromax2, the ultimate grout for tiling. The feedback left at www.tilers-demand.com is unanimously positive, confirming the work of the BAL R&D team and the hundreds of fixers and contractors across the country that helped to develop the technology.
BAL Micromax2, launched in February, was immediately recognised by fixers as the most versatile grout on the market. It matches strength with flexibility, with no shrinkage between tiles at any gap from 1 mm to 20 mm, and suits any wall or floor tiling on any background. The superfine formulation means an unbelievably smooth finish, for long-lasting beauty in any of nine striking colours, each with a matching sealant.
Fixers are invited to go to www.tilers-demand.com and simply give the product a 0-5 star rating, with accompanying comments. Their feedback, unedited, is completely open to public view. The first to post a comment was fixer Mark Ellam, who awarded the grout a full five stars and commented that he, "was keen to try this new formulation as soon as possible," and afterwards was, "very impressed."
Andrew O'Sullivan also rated BAL Micromax2 a five-star product and waxed lyrical in his praise. "BAL has again come up with another excellent product," he wrote. "It mixed up nicely, very smooth and consistent grout to work with, sat up nicely in the joints, held a good potlife and just right on the washdown. Absolutely cannot fault it."
Strong words, perhaps, but tiler Craig Powell would not disagree. He wrote, "A fantastic product! It now really is the one stop grout for the professional." Unsurprisingly, given his comments, he awarded the product five stars.
Overall, professional tilers and contractors have awarded the grout an average of 4.7 out of 5 Stars. Between them, the fixers offered positive feedback on every aspect of BAL Micromax2 and included:
Mark Bolton: "Love the finish, looks great with little effort and the drying time is perfect."
Gavin Wheeler: "Very good product, good choice of colours and cleans up easy."
Adrian Ellis: "Glad that I could use it for floor and wall, have bought some more."
Steve Jolley: "As with all BAL products Micromax2 is very easy to use, made the job a lot quicker due to its quick setting and the finish was perfect. This is why I always insist on using BAL products."
Perhaps the last word should go to Dave Stott, voted Tiler of the Year 2103 by The Tile Association. He was unequivocal in his praise for BAL Micromax2, awarding a five-star rating and writing: "Without doubt the most advanced grout available, what a fantastic finish and a great choice of colours."
BAL, used by professional tilers for over 50 years, continues to lead with product innovation. In BAL Micromax2, it has created a product so good that fixers are happy to praise in public.
