Platinum Chemicals supply a wide range of Complete Damp Proofing Membrane Kits which include a roll of Damp Proofing Membrane, the recommended number of Fixing Plugs and a Sealing Product for the Fixing Plugs (choose between Newton 801-M Sealing Mastic or our Neoprene Sealing Washers). We stock a variety of damp proofing membranes.
Damp Proofing Membranes are thin, studded membranes manufactured from either HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) or PP (Polypropylene) which are used to create a physical barrier between any dampness within the wall and the wall finish. This ensures that the wall finish will never be affected by dampness or salt contamination. These types of membranes are most likely to be applied above ground level.
Most Damp Proofing Membranes have a meshed surface on one side which acts as a 'key' for plaster, render or to receive dot & dab plasterboard.
Our full range of Damp Proofing Membranes come in all different Brands, shapes and sizes, so we have put together a range of kits to make ordering online a much easier experience, giving you all the necessary materials to get the job done.
The Platinum 'DM' Range is our own brand of High Quality Damp Proof Membranes. We have two membranes in this range, Platinum DM3 PRO-MESH and Platinum DM2 ECO-MESH. Both membranes can be plastered, rendered or dot-and-dabbed directly onto.
The 'Platon' Range from Isola also consists of two High Quality Membranes. Platon PB2 is a thin 2mm stud membrane with a meshed surface on one side. The other, Platon Plaster Base, is a 'unique' BBA Approved Damp Proof Membrane which is also suitable for application below ground in basements / cellars etc. as a Waterproof Membrane. What makes Platon Plaster Base unique is that even though there is no meshed surface, it CAN still be plastered, rendered or dot-and-dabbed directly onto. This is down to the 'dovetail' shaped undercut stud which acts as a superb physical key for application of the above materials. This may raise a few eyebrows, but it really does work!
The 'Newton 800' Range from Newton Membranes mainly consists of three Premium Quality Damp Proof Membranes. Newton 803 Newtonite, which is a BBA Approved 3mm Studded High Quality Meshed Membrane. Newton 805 Newlath, another High Quality Meshed Membrane with a 5mm Profile. And Newton 803, a NON-MESHED 3mm Stud Damp Proofing Membrane which is used when a block wall or dry-lining frame is intended as the wall finish.
