Platinum Chemicals are one of the UK Leading Stockists of Dryzone System Products which include Dryzone Damp Proof Cream and Renderguard Gold Plaster Additive.
The Dryzone System range of products is designed to enable you to eliminate problems associated with rising damp and renovate the interior walls that have been effected by it.
Each product in the Dryzone System range is part of a system designed to enable the user to solve the problem of rising damp from start to finish.
In order to stop the progress of rising damp through a wall, it is necessary to create a new DPC. The most practical and effective way to do this is to make an existing mortar course into a waterproof barrier, using high strength damp-proofing products, such as Dryzone Damp Proof Cream.
This is a patented high-strength silicone-based cream that is injected into holes drilled at regular intervals along a mortar course. Once injected, the cream diffuses along the mortar course before curing to form a breathable water-repellent resin – preventing dampness from rising up the wall.
Dryzone Cream was the very first DPC Cream and revolutionised the market when it was launched in the year 2000. It still remains the most effective and most accredited DPC cream on the market today and is suitable for use in almost all rising damp situations.
Following the installation of a remedial DPC using Dryzone Damp-Proofing Cream, correct re-plastering is of the utmost importance. Even though the DPC is effective, hygroscopic salts introduced by the rising damp may cause moisture to be attracted to the wall. This causes further dampness and decorative spoiling, giving the impression that the DPC has not been successful. It is for this reason that re-plastering following the installation of a remedial DPC must perform two functions:
It must prevent the passage of residual moisture reaching the decorative surface during the drying process
It must prevent the passage of hygroscopic salts from the underlying masonry to the new decorative surface in order to prevent further spoiling.
When used as an additive to a 3:1 sand-cement render, Renderguard Gold will fulfil these requirements provided that the specification is strictly adhered to.
