Honestly, being a DIY'er, I never go by product name, rather what its recommended uses are.... If I went by name, I'd be tyveking my shower and putting lacitcrete on the exterior wall

I totally agree... it is a trainwreck waiting to happen though. the industry really needs to clarify the products and their purposes.
LOL. That would for sure keep this list busy.

Well, I won't be holding my breath. From what I've seen, the industry revels in confusion. Manufacturers often won't agree to establishing standardized benchmarks and terms for the similar technologies they produce, simply because none of them is willing to accept a test that will portray its product as less effective than the competition's. By keeping peoples' heads spinning and making it harder to for someone to do an apples-to-apples comparison of similar technologies, they can rely on reputation, networking, advertising and word-of-mouth to keep their product rolling out the door.
