Hello Raphael,
In addition to the excellent advice you already got, I'd just add 2 minor points:
1. Dual approach: ask for a raise and at the same time look for alternatives (possibly via a head hunter) since no current company will give you a raise above 10% (as correctly noted by others).
2. Somebody suggested to ask for additional benefits. To the examples given, I'd add tuition fee (formal degree or various professional courses). While this is tax-deductible for your company, if you planned to learn of course, it can be mutually beneficial. You get something that will make you more knowledgeable and marketable in the future.
Would be nice to get an update from you whether the advice turned out to be helpful. Looking forward to hear good news!
The best of luck,
Erika
