Double gold for codex!

Two products - Two categories - Two victories.

The Ulm-based construction chemicals manufacturer codex wins the Fliesen & Platten reader's choice for the fourth time in a row. This time, they receive the double honour of being "Product of the Year 2018". The winner in the Tile Adhesive/Mortar category is the new highly flexible S2 thin-bed mortar codex Power CX 9, in the Software category the digital member platform from the network of the best SYSTEM X. What distinguishes the two winners is their high level of benefit and their particularly user-friendly properties.

Highly flexible - the codex Power CX 9

With the CX 9, an S2 thin-bed mortar has been created which guarantees the highest level of safety for professional tiling in difficult objects. It is extremely flexible and compensates the tensions that arise between mixed substrates and the laid tile. Our Power CX 9 is particularly elastic, especially in the case of strong thermal changes, such as those that occur when using wall and floor heating systems. The balanced formula guarantees a lasting high-quality result with easy processing - even with large formats. With this, codex is developing another product that responds to the current needs of tilers.

Next Level for real tilers - with SYSTEM X

With the submission of SYSTEM X, codex entered new territory. For the first time, not only installation products were entered into the race for the readers' choice, but also sophisticated software. SYSTEM X was specially designed for tilers. It supports the members of the customer portal Network of the Best in placing regional tiling companies on the market. In addition to current specialist topics and a comprehensive tiler search engine, the focus is on offers for comprehensive marketing support. Once the company logo has been uploaded, payment is made with one click and the branded business equipment, work clothing, construction site tarpaulins and even personalised customer gifts are sent. This provides members with a simple and uncomplicated free service.
