of Rising Damp
Damp Proof Course (D.P.C.) methods are used to treat rising
dampness within masonry walls and provide an effective barrier
against rising damp in buildings which have no D.P.C. or a Failed
D.P.C. Rising damp is usually recognised by a "tide mark"
or moisture staining on the internal surface of the wall and usually
rises up to 1-1.2m from floor level.
D.P.C. Chemical Injection Method
Drill 12mm diameter holes into masonry wall along the line of
proposed D.P.C. and inject D.P.C. fluid to refusal into masonry
walls as per BS 6576/05. This method is a specialist application
and is covered by our written guarantee.
water based gel for the treatment of rising damp
WYKAMOL'S Third generation" DPC formula is
a ready to use, water based and water soluble thixotropic gel which
diffuses naturally into damp substrates. After injection, Ultracure
reacts to form a water repellent silicone resin network within the
capillaries of the substrate. This network is permeable to water
vapour which means that the walls can "breathe" and dry
out naturally. The formulation is not reliant on alkalinity for
effective curing. Ultracure can be used effectively to treat brick,
stone and other substrates.
forms of damproofing treatments include:
- Lectros Electro Osmotic D.P.C.
- Damproofing using Thoroseal /Heydi method.
- Damproofing using Newton Membrane Systems.
