Rising damp is unhealthy, unsightly and can potentially cause timber decay and heat loss. Where there are rising damp problems, Peter Cox can provide a remedial damp proof course (DPC). This DPC uses our Drywall+ Silane Diffusion technology to create a water repellant barrier preventing any moisture rising through the masonry capillaries. No liquid is involved so the wall dries out much quicker. As the cream is not injected under pressure, party walls are not a problem.
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 nonflammable 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 be used for walls of any thickness, including 280mm cavity brick walls. The system carries an Agreement Certificate No 02/3976.
Peter Cox Porestop Slurry: Waterproofing for internal wall areas below the damp proofing course (DPC) level. This includes areas of high salt efflorescence, such as chimney breasts, or steps in the floor level.
DryWall Coating System: The base coat of the DryWall coating system is applied to the prepared wall. This includes a DryWall salt retardant additive to prevent hygroscophic salt migration into the new plastering.
DryWall Top Coat: A DryWall top coat applied to the base coat ready for plastering.
