Maybe - if I found the right place online...
But they didn't show any products like this. Only flooring ( tiles, laminate etc) and offers to hook me up with professionals to install it. Maybe because I'm a "homeowner" and not a "trade professional"?
Is there a secret handshake I need to know ?

This one is about 40 miles away

Greg... sorry.... you are correct... It's FL
Guess I was thinking Fast Set.. Which it does...

Jeff.. hope you can get it soon.. I'd lean on my Dal Tile guys - they really can get it.. Whether or not they want to now is a different subject..

I almost used it last week but used Bostik instead. Mapei needs to make the pails larger for the 3D.

Our pails are sized for a typical backsplash. Packaging size is one of those 'no-win' situations for manufacturers. What size packaging would you like to see?

Unhappy

I called Mapei to find out where I could purchase Mapesil 3D, and the nearest distributors are 100 miles away: Lowes and Dal-Tile. Both said it was a special order (fine by me) and that I would need to purchase TEN UNITS minimum (not so fine by me).

As a DIYer, I've been ordering online for two+ decades and this is the first product that I simply cannot find an online source for.

Has anyone found an online source for this?

Do I need to search the dark web next????

Peter, let me look into this for you. Could you send me a message with your location and what you're looking to order?

Thanks!

Hi Dan,

I found an online supplier for the Flexcolor 3D: flooranddecor. I can't link yet, but if you put DOT and you know what comes next after flooranddecor it will take you there. Reasonable pricing and shipping too.

They don't carry the matching Mapesil 3D, and I'm still not able to find that anywhere.

I'll PM you separately.

Thanks!
