    Applying BAL WP1 to Knauf Aquapanel

    Applying BAL WP1 to Knauf Aquapanel 16th Jan 07 at 9:39 AM
    I've read a few threads about the WP1 Shower Tanking kit and I want to use it when I refit my bathroom next month.

    I intend on using Knauf Aquapanel, tank and then apply tiles.

    I have been reading the Bal data sheet...

    And this suggests that for tile backer board you need to

    "Apply a skim coat of a BAL cement-based adhesive modified with BAL-ADMIX AD1, prior to tanking. For wall areas BAL-GRIP may be used. Allow adhesive to dry."

    I am slightly disappointed as I thought the kit would contain everything I required.

    I guess I should follow what the data sheet tells me, I am interested to understand if anybody has just used the primer and WP1 on Aquapanel without doing the step in the data sheet?
