Platinum Chemicals stock the Full Range of Wykamol 'Type C' BBA Approved Cavity Drain Waterproof Membranes and ancillary products.
The Wykamol Range of Cavity Drain Membranes are high quality, structural waterproofing materials, with a choice of stud height for different drainage capacities and applications.
Type C Waterproofing Protection manages water that penetrates the external shell of a structure, by collecting it in a cavity formed between the external wall and an internal lining/wall.
There is permanent reliance on this cavity to collect groundwater seepage and direct it to a suitable discharge point, e.g. drains or a sump for removal by gravity drainage or mechanical pumping.
New construction generally incorporates a cavity drain membrane, however the use of other products and techniques, such as drained voids constructed in masonry, can also be considered.
Traditionally, the cavity in floor construction has been formed by the use of either no-fines concrete or ceramic tile systems. These are rarely used in new construction, but might be encountered when refurbishing existing structures.
Wykamol CM8 Waterproof Membrane is a High Quality, 8mm Stud Cavity Drain Membrane suitable for the waterproofing of earth retained Walls, Floors and Vaulted Soffits below ground level (i.e in Basements).
Wykamol CM8 MESH Membrane is a High Quality, 8mm Stud, Basement Waterproofing Tanking Membrane comprising of HDPE Membrane with a strong HDPE mesh on the surface of one side. The meshed surface creates a mechanical key to allow the membrane to be plastered, rendered or to receive dot & dab plasterboard.
Wykamol CM3 Waterproof Membrane is a High Quality, 3mm Stud Cavity Drain Membrane suitable for Waterproofing of Walls, Floors, Vaults and Tunnels. With its 3mm Stud, Wykamol CM3 Waterproof Membrane is ideal for when space is tight, such as with stairs or low headroom. Wykamol CM3 Membrane is suitable for use in both below-ground 'Type C' Waterproofing Applications and for above-ground Damp Proofing Applications while delivering a Grade 3 Environment to BS8102:2009 and NHBC Chapter 5.4.
Wykamol CM3 MESH Waterproof Membrane is a High Quality, 3mm Stud, Meshed Membrane comprising of HDPE Membrane with a rot-proof HDPE mesh on the surface of one side. The meshed surface creates a mechanical key to allow the membrane to be plastered, rendered or to receive dot & dab plasterboard.
Wykamol CM20 Waterproof Membrane is a High Quality, 20mm Stud, Cavity Drain Basement Waterproofing Floor Membrane made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). Wykamol CM20 Membrane is used as a high drainage capacity floor membrane and is generally specified where it is anticipated that there may be a risk of severe water penetration.
Wykamol CM8 Geotextile Membrane is a High Quality, 8mm Stud, External Basement Drainage Membrane comprising of an 8mm studded HDPE Membrane and a non-woven geotextile. Wykamol CM8 Geotextile Membrane is designed to manage water to the land drain, relieving pressure from the structure.
Wykamol CM Brick Plugs are High Quality Fixing Plugs used in Basement Waterproofing and Damp Proofing applications to secure Wykamol Waterproof Membranes to the base material, usually brickwork & concrete. A 10mm SDS Drill bit should be used for application of Wykamol CM Brick Plugs. Wykamol CM Brick Plugs can be purchased with or without Sealing Washers.
Wykamol Membrane Sealing Tape is a high quality, 2mm thick, double sided butyl tape used to attach 2 sheets of Waterproof Tanking Membrane together on walls or on floors along the flange where they overlap.
Wykamol Sealing Rope is used to wrap around the head of Fixing Plugs when installing Damp Proof Membranes and Basement Waterproof Membranes to provide a waterproof seal round the head of the fixing, Wykamol Sealing Rope can also be used to form a jointing waterproof seal on wall and floor membrane systems.
Wykamol Corner Strip Tape is a Heavy Duty, 1.2mm Thick membrane sealing tape with many uses. It is most commonly used to seal Waterproof Tanking Membranes from walls to floors and fixing Perimeter Drainage Channels. Wykamol Corner Strip Tape can also be used to overtape external joints and for oversealing on Floor Membranes.
Wykamol Mesh Tape is a self-adhesive sealing tape made of a butyl rubber compound with a polypropylene fleece finish, developed for use with our range of Damp Proof and Waterproof MESHED Membranes. The 'Fleece' surface provides a 'key' for plastering and rendering over.
