Introducing BAL Tank-it - the ultimate waterproofing system for all applications
Suitable for internal or external waterproofing, BAL Tank-it is the new, ultimate tanking system formulated with innovative technology from the UK's market-leader in tiling solutions. Highly polymer-modified, the two-part, rapid-setting product provides complete protection and can be tiled after only 90 minutes - and, since no priming is required, it produces significant time and cost savings on key installations for tilers and contractors.
Easy to use, BAL Tank-it can be applied by either simply using a standard 4mm notched trowel and float, brush or roller. As it conforms to BS EN 14891 classification it can also be applied outside for projects including terraces, balconies and fountains and it is perfect for waterproofing areas of total immersion such as swimming pools, hydrotherapy pools, spas and hot tubs.
"BAL Tank-it components - 5kg powder, 5 litre liquid and 20m scrim tape - are each sold separately, allowing ease of use on larger commercial and domestic products," explains the company's Philip Jenkins.
"As well as providing ultimate all-round performance, ultimate workability and ultimate versatility, BAL Tank-it comes with a complete 25 year guarantee when used as part of a full BAL system solution - providing market-leading peace of mind on all installations.
"Users can also rely on BAL for complete project support. No other brand can offer so much experience and expertise including free technical advice, free on-site consultancy, free training and free specification service.
"Now available in stockists nationwide, BAL Tank-it is the revolutionary new waterproofing system for complete protection in any environment, ensuring your projects look great and last the test of time."
