At Platinum Chemicals, Damp Proofing is our speciality. We have a comprehensive range of damp proofing products to treat and prevent problems such as Rising Damp and Penetrating Damp, with products such as Damp Proofing Creams, Membranes, Water Repellents and much more.
Rising Damp is a common problem in older properties either because no damp proof course (DPC) was provided at the time of building, or because a physical membrane has failed or been 'bridged'. In the majority of cases the provision of a remedial DPC is a cost effective and minimum disturbance option for damp proofing. Platinum Chemicals provide an industry leading range of BBA Approved Remedial Damp Proofing products to treat Rising Dampness as DampSolve™, Dryzone, SikaMur InjectoCream, Siliconate K.
Penetrating Damp is also known as 'rain penetration' and can occur through walls, roofs, window or door surrounds. Our range of damp proofing treatments for Penetrating Damp include Masonry Protection Creams and Water Repellents, products such as StormDry, Dryseal and Enviroseal.
We also offer a wide range of Damp Proofing Membranes (DPM) which can be used immediately after a Damp Proof Course to create a physical barrier between the damp wall and the new internal finish. Some of these membranes have a mesh surface which creates a mechanical key to allow the membrane to be plastered, rendered or to receive dot & dab plasterboard.
Damp Proof Paints (DampSeal and Technoseal) are brush applied Waterproof Membrane Paints based on SBR Latex, used for water-proofing walls. These products are fast drying and can be applied to sound masonry by brush or roller.
In many instances when installing a Damp Proof Course, there are issues with differing ground levels or flood related problems. In these circumstances, a cement based coating along with a DPC may be necessary. Platinum Chemicals offer a range of Tanking Products to deal with these problems such as Tanking Slurries, Water Plugging Compounds and Cement Tanking additives.
Other products such as the Protimeter Range of Pin-Type and Non-Invasive Moisture Meters are available to purchase from our online store. These products are designed for building professionals and tradesmen to check the moisture content in a variety of construction materials
Last but not least we also stock all the Applicator Tools required for your damp proofing projects.
