Surface preparation is key when it comes to bonding tiles to surfaces. We recommend the use of Waterproofing primer on all substrates to be tiled, other than substrates covered with a waterproofing membrane. For best results, our waterproof tiling primer products should be used prior to adhesives and waterproofing membranes.


Our range of additives can be used to modify the performance of cement based adhesives and grouts to meet the requirements of specific applications.

Once mixed with an additive, the tile adhesive or grout’s shear bond strength, flexural strength, water, stain and chemical resistance can be
increased. Davco enhancers and additives can also be used to enhance the workability and to speed up or slow down the curing time of an adhesive.
