Super TTB is a premium grade thick or thin bed
cement-based adhesive specifically formulated to
produce an extra high strength bond for the fixing of
tiles onto rigid substrates.
Super TTB can be used on both walls and floors
in interior and exterior applications.
Super TTB can be used to fix tiles onto concrete
cement renders/screeds blockwork rendered
brickwork and particular waterproofing
Super TTB is recommended for the thin or thick
bed fixing of all types of ceramic mosaic fully
vitrified porcelain terracotta slate quarry
granite and marble tiles with the exception of light
coloured or green marbles.
When using Super TTB with
translucent/absorbent tiles the colour of the
adhesive must be considered to avoid
Super TTB when combined with neat Davelastic
can be used to fix tiles over tiles onto facades or
fix tiles in immersed situations i.e. swimming
pools spas etc. Initially contact your ParexDavco
(Australia) Pty Ltd state office for further details.
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 finish.
Old rendered/screeded surfaces must be
thoroughly cleaned prior to tiling and have a wood
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.
4. At internal vertical corners.
5. Around the perimeter of the tiling system.
6. At a maximum of 5 metre intervals in a grid
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 polysulphide and
polyurethane type fillers.
Add Super TTB to a bucket of clean water mixing
constantly until a thick creamy consistency is
The mixing ratio is 20kg of Super TTB to
approximately 5 litres of clean water.
Allow the mixture to stand for 10 minutes remix
then use the adhesive.
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
For wall tiling a minimum final bed thickness of
2mm is recommended whilst for floor tiling a
minimum final bed thickness of 3mm is
Do not spread more than 1m2 of adhesive at any
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 Super TTB 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.
