    Default Bal Rapidset or Bal Flexi

    Hi, was wondering if it's possible to use normal Bal Rapidset on 2 large floor areas instead of Bal Flexi. I got 2 very large jobs of 110m2 in total of plywood floors and was hoping to save some money. I've got a trade card with Topps but the Flexi is still expensive, but don't want to use the Rapidset if it's going to cause problems later on. Cheers

    Simple answer mate, no. You can use rapidset with admix AD1 if the floor is prepped properly a la BAL recommendations and this would be more expensive than rapidset flexy but also more flexible.

    It is only 24, but the Rapidset is 15 and when your buying around 30bags that's a big difference. Thanks for the replies, fairly new to the game and was just making sure. Looks like it's the flexi.

    personally i cant see that using SP is a good idea but thats just me,for me it must be 2 PT.
    if you want cheap 2PT then topps do palace rebranded topps for 16.

    now that IS a good idea,well done Dave mate,looks like you were the only 1 thinking outside the box,as the rest of us were relating to Bal gear.
