DAMP GUARD is durable, high performance; elastomeric damp proof membrane designed using polymer modified bitumen coated on to a tough fiber base, laminated with special polyolefin foil. The elastomeric nature of the synthetically modified coating is designed as a homogenous mixture of special bitumen and selected quality type SBS elastomer, which ensures high product quality and superior performance with excellent flexibility in cold climatic conditions.
- To prevent entry of moisture or water into the structural system.
- To accommodate the structural movements.
- In vertical and horizontal applications.
- Where high mechanical properties are demanded.
METHOD OF APPLICATION
The application of DAMP GUARD damp proof membrane is easy and it is applied at the construction stage (i.e. at the erection of brick work, block work or construction of walls by conventional building methods).The DAMP GUARD should be applied to the full wall thickness and it should be laid on an even surface of mortar. The overlapping should be to the same width of the damp proof course or 100mm min. including sealing laps. The method of laying, joining and forming cavity trays should be in accordance with the relevant building regulations and codes of practice.DAMP GUARD is fully compatible with DUSEAL (Self adhesive) membranes to provide a complete moisture proof system.
The rolls have to be stored vertically and protected against moisture and extreme heat. Before application in cold season, store at least 12 hours free from frost.
HEALTH & SAFETY
There are no direct health hazards associated with DAMP GUARD membranes. Normal precautions for hot and volatile substances should be observed during application. Refer to our MSDS sheets for advice.
