  • Without off-hook.

Descriptive Memory

  • Ceramic tiles shall be laid with ARGOCOLA ELITE 400 cementitious adhesive, made by the company Argos derived from cement, class C2FTE S1 according to the UNE EN 12004 standard. The fixing substrate shall be sound, clean, free of friable parts, completely hardened and shall have completed its time of dimensional variation. The joints shall be respected. Ceramic tiles shall be laid with spacers for tile-to-tile joints.


  • Mortar renderings.
  • Concrete floors.
  • Cement-based substrates.
  • Underfloor heating according to UNE 138003.
  • Plasterboard partition walls.

Substrate preparation

  • The substrate must be free of damp issues and must have completed its setting process.
  • The substrates must be clean and sound, free of grease, paint or other substances that would prevent proper adhesion.

Instruction for Use

  • Mix ARGOCOLA ELITE 400 with 7.5 L of clean water per 25 kg bag manually or mechanically until a homogeneous, creamy and lump-free mixture is obtained.
  • Allow to stand for 5 minutes before application.
  • Comb the adhesive onto the substrate with a 6×6 mm notched trowel for small formats or 8×8 mm for formats larger than 40×40 cm. The adhesive is spread out in layers of approx. 1 m² so that the time that elapses between the application of the adhesive on the substrate and the laying of the tiles does not cause the adhesive to lose sufficient wettability for proper adhesion.
  • The tiles should be pressed until the grooves of the adhesive are flattened.


  • Leave a grouting space between tiles appropriate to the size of the tile and the total surface area applied according to UNE 138003.
  • Do not knead a large amount of product due to the short shelf life of the mixture.
  • Do not apply when there is a risk of frost, rain, strong wind or direct sunlight.
  • Do not apply in a thick layer without double gluing.
  • Do not apply below 5°C or above 30°C.
  • Do not apply to gypsum substrates without priming with DANOPRIMER® RPU.
  • Do not apply to plastic, metal, wood, rubber, etc. surfaces.
  • Comply with the construction joints.
  • Before mechanical preparation, varnish residues, waxes, grease, oil and similar pollutants must be removed.

Handling, storage and preservation

  • It is packaged in 25 kg multi-leaf paper bags with damp-proof sheets that allow it to be stored for 12 months in its original sealed packaging, safe from dampness.
