DryFix DPC Injection Cream Kit
DryFix DPC injection cream kit is an advanced silicone based technology used in the control of rising damp.
It is a cream that is injected into holes drilled along a mortar bed using either a standard 400ml mastic applicator gun. Once installed, the high strength formulation spreads along the mortar bed before curing to form a damp-proof course.
The patented installation method has been optimised to ensure that it is effective on a wide range of mortar types, including porous and low alkalinity mortars as well as stone and rubble filled walls.
DryFix® DPC injection cream has a high level of active ingredients compared to others in the market place.
- Easy to install, no specialist equipment required
- Virtually odourless
- Non-hazardous to the environment
- Ready to use
- Fully cured within 2 – 6 weeks
In all cases, a remedial chemical damp proof course should, as far as is possible, be installed in accordance with the British Standard ‘Code of Practice for Installation of Chemical Damp Proof Courses’ BS 6576 (2005). In particular, the inserted DPC should be below the level of timber floors. Contaminated plaster should be replaced in accordance with BS6576 (2005). New plaster should not bridge the DPC.
It may be necessary to use more cream under certain conditions, e.g. where the mortar course does not form a straight line, brick and mortar is very porous or for rubble infill walls. Allow for 10% additional material.
The kit comprises of:
- Chosen number of 380ml DPC Injection Cream tubes
