Interesting Hammy,

I get it for near that price now, why would someone want to pay shipping and on 6 pallets to boot !

your looking at about $150 shipping per pallet.

Watch 2 chuckleheads bid that up to $10 and think they scored a great deal.

I think it is the 252 in our world Levi.
My guess is that "multi purpose" says more about what the product can be used for than the # 252.
Its all in who they are marketing to. Us or the Diy'r.

I thought it was 252 as well. Was in a Lowes a few weeks ago though and they still had pallets of the 252 as well as the Multipurpose. Was the 252 just old? I dunno. I thought Lowes and Laticrete changed the names several years ago. Would hate to buy 3 year old thinset.

I've talked to Laticrete and have been told that the products are the same, they just seem to say it in an around about way. They cant' confirm or deny, but yes you're right.. kinda thing.

I'm sure this was all talked about before and there's a list somewhere, but maybe a sticky that lists what Lowes carries and the corresponding Laticrete numbers might be nice as a quick goto reference point for when we're steering the DIY'ers in the right direction.

When low's around here switched from Mapei to Laticrete I called Laticrete and got the same 'can't confirm or deny' evasiveness. So i had to ask a bunch of questions to finally make a little cross reference chart. I think all the Laticrete bags have the dates stamped right on them tho in plain numbers, not a secret code.

Well as I can't find the old thread that had many of them listed.. maybe we can start talking about them?

Megabond=317
Multipurpose=252

Anyone guessing on the Spectraset?

Fine to speculate in here if we like, Justin, but Mega Bond is not 317.

Wish it were. Usta think it was. Wish they'd change that.

Got no eye-dee what SpectraSet might be. First time I ever heard of it was............'bout five minutes ago.

I'm curious CX, you used to think it was and not now? How come?

As far as Spectraset,

http://www.laticrete.com/Portals/0/d...ts/lds6860.pdf

Guess its the same as their multipurpose pro, which I have no idea what it matches in their numbered lineup. Platinum maybe? But I think its cheaper than platinum so I'm at a loss.

Its the same thing we went through with the Hydroban and WaterTight thing. Not really the same, but yeah they're the same... At least I've come to that conclusion in my talks with the powers that be.

Edit: I see on my local lowes.com they have the 254 platinum listed, as well as the Multipurpose Pro, $65 vs $25 a bag.
Also have the Floor Adhesive thinset, absolutely no idea where that one fits in the line, except for it being the cheapest.
Marble and granite 220 is still the same..

I believe your pretty much right Justin, but instead of "=", use "very very close to being equal to" .

I think multipurpose pro = spectaset and both are very very close to being equal to 253.

The Lowes out here sells Mapei so not familar with the Lowes branding for Laticrete products. But I think the multipurpose pro = 253 Gold

Glad we have good Laticrete distributor that keeps what we need in stock and helps load the truck.!

I guess tile contractors like numbers and diy's like words for thinset descriptions.

Our lowes stocke mapei also so just guessing here, but could the floor adhesive be Sureset?

Speaking of sure set any body ever used it? I was talking to me rep and he told me I don't have to burn the backs of porcelain with it, but then he said I definitely couldn't us it on walls. I asked him why, he told me because it is for floors...lol...I asked him what makes a mortar that has great adhesive properties on floors but can't be used on walls and he couldn't answer.
