Which Tile Adhesive Did You Use Most During 2009?
Please vote on the Poll. All answers can be seen by the members.

If you used a brand not showing then please respond with the make.

I'm talking about both cement-based and dispersion. And I'm asking which brand in general did you use the most? It might be due to trust, availability, customer preference, whatever. Just if you totted up the lot you used, which one did you use and buy the most of?

This is for 2009 only

ALL TILE ADHESIVE POLLS - WHICH TILE ADHESIVE BRAND DO YOU USE THE MOST?


ADDED: If you work for any of the adhesive companies please refrain from voting. I've reduced the Mapie vote count by 3 to make it fair. We don't allow any staff from the firms to vote as we can't allow all firms on the forums due to the sponsorship system. Thanks for understanding.

Overall it would be Biscem but Weber and Mapei not far behind, This is due to availabilty of Biscem over Mapei.
I have tried to get my local dealer to get Mapei but its a no go.

Mostly Toppfix which is palace, with Mapei a close second...however, with the new Tile Giant TF sponsorship all white addy will be Mapei. Still cant get the grey cheaper than Topps though unfortunately. Only used powdered gear too.

So far it's looking like the BAL share of the market has somewhat descreased, and Mapei's somewhat increased. Though BAL have 1 vote more than Mapei, but it's too early to give true figures yet. Good news for Mapei it seems.

Maybe due to people going from bal to mapei which appears to be largely based around the expense of BAL and the quality of Mapei shining through?

some very interesting reading comparisons to be made between the gear used in the U.K. & Oz.
Ardex/BAL/Dunlop there are Ardex/ABA/dunlop here - & sounds like they're having same problems.
we also have Mapei - PCI & Laticrete as international brands (kera koll came & went)with local presence but only Mapei seriously manufacture. We also have a doz. other local Co.s of varying sizes & market share. it is curious that we can all be doing the same trade & yet doing it so differently.
might make an interesting long term topic itself ??

i see a lot of people hear tell that mapei is great and not expensive. this is good.

bal far to expesnive and not worth all the money extra. it like they think of number and times by 100.

i have pci and sometime weber here onsite. boss buy in on wooden square, a lot of bags. very good and boss tell me it cheap. i like pci much. nice consitency and easy to work

once i find something that works and the price is good i tend to stick with it now.
but to be fair it was tilegiants prices that caused the this shift .
