1 x DRYZONE DPC DAMP PROOFING CREAM 310ml TUBE
Whenever Rising Damp is diagnosed, it is important to have the condition correctly treated, as failure to do so can cause damage and devaluation to any property.
It is not sufficient to simply cover up the problem with a special paint or coating in the hope that the problem will go away. Only by preventing the dampness rising up the wall in the first place can rising dampness be adequately controlled.
Until the introduction of Dryzone the most widely employed method of achieving this was to inject water-repellent fluids into the wall under pressure.
Although this method has proven to be effective, it is known to have a number of disadvantages; for example, it introduces large amounts of liquid carrier into the wall, prolonging the drying out period. The process is also very slow and operator dependent.
The Dryzone System is fast, clean and effective.
The introduction of Dryzone revolutionised the treatment of Rising Damp. Dryzone comes in the form of a water-repellent cream packed in a 600ml foil cartridge to minimise environmental impact.
The Dryzone cream is introduced by means of a simple applicator gun into a series of holes drilled into the mortar course. Once the Dryzone is installed, it uses the moisture contained in the damp wall to diffuse to where it is most needed before curing to form a water repellent resin.
Dryzone in action:
Dryzone has many advantages over conventional chemical injection systems:
Quick to install - no “double drilling”, no waiting for fluid to soak in under pressure.
Easy to install - less scope for operator error.
Concentrated formulation (over 60% active ingredient) - does not introduce large volumes of liquid carrier into the wall.
Low hazard - non-caustic, non-flammable and not injected under pressure.
Spillage and mess virtually eliminated - no problems with fluid flooding through party walls.
Consistent application rate - easy to estimate the amount of material that will be required.
Does not require an electric DPC pump - can be used in situations where power is not available.
Dryzone is the result of an extensive in-house research and development programme. This involved the screening and testing of hundreds of potential formulations.
Our tests demonstrate that Dryzone offers a higher degree of protection against rising damp than the chemical injection systems it was designed to replace.
In addition to achieving BBA certification, Dryzone has undergone successful tests to determine:
Effectiveness in porous and neutral pH mortars such as those found in Victorian buildings,
Effectiveness in rubble-filled walls.
Superior performance when compared with competitive products Dryzone’s high strength formulation is trusted by professional installers around the world.
To date over one million tubes of Dryzone have been sold, enough to treat over 3.3 million metres of 4½” wall.
The Dryzone system is recognised by both the Guarantee Protection Trust (GPT) and the Property Guarantee Administration (PGA) as an acceptable method of rising damp treatment.
The GPT and PGA are the industry leaders in the provision of independent, long-term guarantee insurance for remedial treatments.
