Triton Isola Platon PB2 Mesh Damp Proofing Membrane Kit 5m² with 100 Plaster Plugs with Seals
Triton Isola Platon PB2 Mesh Damp Proofing Membrane Kit with 2.5mm profile stud ideal for re-plastering after the installation of a chemical DPC or areas of damp such as chimney breasts.
Isola Platon membrane made for HDPE material is impervious to salts and vapour and waterproof. The 2.5mm stud allows a wall to breathe behind the membrane. Suitable for a dot and dab plasterboard finish or you can render directly to it.
When applying Damp Proofing Mesh Membrane you fix the membrane to walls with Insulation Plaster Plug Fixings.
Membrane should be applied tight to the wall with no ‘bubbles’ or kinks. For a dot and dab plasterboard finish fixings should be applied at 250mm centres. For a render finish and to avoid cracks in the render, centres should be reduced to 200mm centres.
Plaster board panels can be fixed to the membrane with the dot and dab method, giving a dry surface ready for immediate decoration. ‘Dabs’ should be applied to the heads of the Fixing Plugs,
board edges and membrane to cover 50% of the membrane.
NOTE: We do not recommend that laminated or insulated plasterboard is dot and dabbed to meshed membranes. Laminated boards have to be fixed to the wall with a mechanical fixing at each side of the board, just above half way.
To avoid the passage of vapour or moisture to travel through the entry point of a plug fixing in the membrane it is advised plugs have a neoprene washer seal on them. Areas that are higher up a wall and not prone to damp my not necessarily require a seal but we do recommend there use.
This kit is for a dot an dab finish. It contains the following:
1 x roll of Isola Platon damp proofing mesh membrane 1mtr x 5mtrs.
100 x 8mm x 50/70mm Insulation Plaster Plug Fixings with Neoprene seals
An 8mm x 160mm SDS Plus drill bit is required for the fixings.
