Damp Proofing

    Rising damp is the phenomenon where groundwater rises up through a wall via capillary action. Capillary action is the ability of a liquid to flow along narrow spaces, counter to the forces of gravity. Bricks and mortar can be very porous and contain many fine capillaries, through which water can rise. The groundwater that rises up through the wall often contains salts that can contaminate plaster and cause lasting decorative spoilage. Most modern properties are built with a damp-proof course. Some properties, however, were built with no damp proof course, or the original DPC has failed, meaning that rising damp occurs and it is necessary to make remedial repairs. Older pressure injection techniques for treating rising damp are time consuming, complicated and expensive. Dryzone Damp-Proofing Cream is the fast, clean and effective method of rising damp treatment.

    Dryzone Damp-Proofing Cream is a water-based silicone cream that spreads through, and bonds with, sand;cement mortar. Any continuous sand;cement mortar line that has been properly treated with Dryzone becomes a damp-proof course. Due to the fact that it is a high strength cream, Dryzone delivers over 5 times more active ingredient to a wall, over a wider area, than other low strength competitors, making it longer lasting and more effective.
