Platinum Chemicals Ltd offer a wide range of high quality John Newton & Co membranes and Isola Platon membranes.
Platinum Chemicals offer an extensive range of membrane types from shallow studded 'slimline' profiles (Newton 601 Slimline Membrane) to 8mm studded membranes (Newton 508 Cavity Drain Membrane; Platon P8 Cavity Drain Membrane) to deep 20mm Cavity Drain membranes (Newton 520 Cavity Drain Membrane) which allows a wide vairety of situations to be dealt with providing tailorerd solutions. The final choice of membrane is determined by two factors: 1). The finish required and 2). The anticipated flow rate.
Since the introduction of the British Standard for water proofing structures below ground (BS 8102:1990) the use of cavity drain membranes has become the most popular form of structural waterproofing in the UK. Our systems can easily deal with aggresive ground water conditions, where basements are liable to flooding, or indeed where simple dampness, contamination or salting problems are prevalent.
