Davco- SMP 2010-Stone, Marble and Porcelain Adhesive

By  Last updated: 15th June 2012

SMP 2010-Stone, Marble and Porcelain Adhesive

SMP 2010 is a white, premium grade, polymer fortified
and reinforced adhesive specifically designed for high
quality porcelain, stone and marble installations.
• SMP 2010 can be used on both walls and floors, in
interior and exterior applications.
• SMP 2010 can be used to fix tiles onto concrete,
cement renders/screeds, blockwork, rendered
brickwork and particular waterproofing membranes.
• SMP 2010 can be used for fixing wall tiles onto
flexible building boards such as fibre cement sheet
and plasterboard.
• SMP 2010 is recommended for the thin or thick bed
fixing of all types of ceramic, mosaic, vitrified,
porcelain, terracotta, slate, quarry, natural stone,
granite and marble tiles (especially white marble),
with the exception of green marbles.
• Setting can be accelerated by using Lanko 302
Cement accelerator (see mixing section)
• Polymer fortified – provides high bond strength and
gives excellent adhesion to all types of porous and
non-porous tiles and stone.
• Reinforced – much lower shrinkage than other
cement based adhesives systems – which is
required for Natural Stone’s, as they are more
prone to shrinkage/expansion than ceramic tiles.
• High bond strength
• Long repositioning allowing more time to move
tiles/natural stone into the correct position.
• All surfaces must be structurally sound, dry, clean
and free from movement, oil, grease, wax, curing
compounds and any other loose or contaminating
• Painted surfaces must be scabbled/abraded to
expose at least 80% of the original substrate.
• Newly rendered/screeded surfaces must be allowed
to cure for at least 7 days and have a wood float
• Old rendered/screeded surfaces must be
thoroughly cleaned prior to tiling and have a wood
float finish.
• New concrete must be allowed to cure for 6 weeks
and should have a wood float finish.
• Steel trowel finished concrete must be acid etched
or mechanically abraded prior to tiling.
• Old concrete surfaces must be thoroughly cleaned
prior to tiling.
• Make sure all release agents are removed from
concrete surfaces, especially on tilt-up slabs.
• Porous/dusty surfaces must initially be primed
using Davco Ultraprime.
• Certain non-absorbent/contaminated surfaces can
easily be prepared for tiling via the use of Davco
Movement joints should be provided as follows:
1. Over movement joints in the background.
2. At a junction between different background
3. At fixtures interrupting the tile surface e.g. columns.
4. At internal vertical corners.
5. Around the perimeter of the tiling system.
6. At a maximum of 5 metre intervals in a grid pattern.
Note: Movement joints should go right through the tile
adhesive bed to the background and be kept free from
dirt and adhesive droppings. Movement joints must not
be less than 6mm nor greater than 10mm wide. All
movement joints that are 6mm wide can be filled with
Davco Sanitized® Colorcaulk. For wider applications
use Davco Davsil or Sodaflex 603.
• Add SMP 2010 to a bucket of clean water mixing
constantly until a thick creamy consistency is
• The mixing ratio is 20kg of SMP 2010 to
approximately 5 litres of clean water.
• Allow the mixture to stand for 10 minutes, remix,
then use the adhesive.
• If a fast setting adhesive is needed mix 20kg with
4.5L of a 1:4 gauged mixture of Lanko 302:water.
This equals 0.9 litres Lanko 302 and 3.6 litres
water. This mixture will achieve high strength in 24
hours and will be suitable for normal traffic.
• Spread the adhesive onto the substrate using a
6mm x 6mm notched trowel for the installation of
wall tiles up to 150mm x 150mm.
• For the installation of floor tiles or wall tiles larger
than 150mm x 150mm, use a 10mm x 10mm to a
12mm x 12mm notched trowel.
• Tiles with lugs, grooves or an uneven back must
initially be butter coated with the adhesive, in
addition to the adhesive being trowelled onto the

• A 6mm x 6mm notched trowel can be used to lay
mosaic tiles.
• For wall tiling a minimum final bed thickness of
2mm is recommended, whilst for floor tiling a
minimum final bed thickness of 3mm is
• When laying tiles which are larger than 400mm x
400mm in size, Davco recommend the use of a
12mm x 12mm notched trowel as a minimum –
back buttering of the tile may also be necessary to
ensure greater than 90% coverage is achieved.
Care needs to be taken to ensure the adhesive
does not skin prior to bedding the tile.
• Can spread up to 1m2 of adhesive at any one time
on properly primed surfaces.
• Press tiles firmly into position before the adhesive
skins, ensuring that all the tiles are well bedded and
that no voids occur under the tiles.
• Occasionally, in order to ensure that full coverage is
being maintained, a tile should be removed, the
adhesive coverage noted and the tile be relaid
• Once the tiles have been laid, they must not be
disturbed or trafficked upon for 24 hours at 20oC.
• Grouting can be carried out 24 hours after the
completion of tiling.
• Use the Davco grout that best suits the tiling
installation. Refer to the Davco Adhesive and Grout
Selection Guide for further information.
• To enhance colour, increase water resistance and
flexibility of the grout, use Davco Grout Additive.
This is particularly recommended when grouting
over timber or fibre cement sheeted floors, to
minimise the likelihood of the grout
• Allow 24 hours after grouting before putting the
area into service.
• Do not apply SMP 2010 in temperatures above
400C or below 50C.
• Do not allow the adhesive to skin prior to laying the
tiles. If the adhesive skins, remove and dispose of
it, then re-apply fresh adhesive.
• Not suitable for immersion.
• For other uses or the use of SMP 2010 in situations
not mentioned in these instructions, contact your
ParexDavco (Australia) Pty Ltd state office.
• Being cement based, SMP 2010 is alkali in nature,
which can cause dermatitis. It is recommended
that applicators wear PVC or similar gloves and
safety goggles.
• For a full MSDS on this product, contact your

A 20kg bag SMP 2010 will cover approximately 4.5m2

• Remove any excess adhesive from the face of the
tiles with a damp cloth, while the adhesive is still
• Clean tools and equipment with water before the
adhesive dries.
