    Default Fired Earth adhesives and grouts...

    Hi squad,

    I'm looking at quite a luscious job where the customer has already bought a couple of pallets of Fired Earth materials, including Fired Earth adhesive and grout....

    Before anyone says 'get them to take it back and swap for Mapei' - they can't

    Has anyone had any experience of this stuff and do you know who makes it?

    I think Dunlop used to make it but not sure if they still do.

    Cheers.

    Bal and Dunlop are part of the same group - just packaging for different consumer markets.
    Fired Earth have always had their adhesives from Building Adhesives Ltd.
    What colour grout is specified?
    As you will be aware the adhesives from FE are expensive.
