I'm about to lay an anti-fracture mat onto plywood, does the ply need any coating before I lay it?
1 or 2mm adhesive underneath the mat?
Can I use BAL Single Part Flexible Tile Adhesive for the mat?
Can I use BAL Single Part Flexible Tile Adhesive for floor and wall tiles (they are 9.5mm ceramic)?
Powder or ready-mixed?
Is a 10mm notched trowel the right size?

What anti fracture mat are you intending to use exactly, is it a BAL Rapid mat type or a Schluter type? I prefer to use an acrylic adhesive for Schluter on plywood for instance.
What are the walls made of?
Powdered adhesive is always better than premixed.

I was going to use Dural DuraBase CI++. I only need 4 sq m which seems to be expensive as its only a small quantity. The walls are waterproof plasterboard.
