    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.

    Waterproof plasterboard doesn’t exist.

    It's neither waterproof nor water resistant. It's moisture resistant and will need tanking on a wet area

    Yes,it will be tanked. I'm just unclear about the anti fracture mat.
