Damp proof cream is a rising damp treatment that offers a good alternative to the traditional chemical injection damp proof course (DPC).
This cream based damp proof course uses our Drywall+ Silane Diffusion technology to create a water repellent barrier preventing any moisture rising through the masonry capillaries. No liquid is involved so the wall dries out much quicker. Also, because the cream is not injected under pressure it is suitable for party walls.
The cream diffuses with the aid of moisture in the wall and releases a silane vapour that reacts with the silica in the masonry forming a water repellent resin. The cream is non-flammable and has no odour, is non-caustic and solvent free. DryWall Silane Diffusion can be applied to remedy rising damp in walls of any type and thickness, including brick and stone construction, external and internal walls. It can even be used for 280mm cavity brick walls.
The system also carries an Agreement Certificate No 02/3976
