Twistfix supplies universal damp treatment kits for treating damp walls above ground level, irrespective of the kind of dampness. This 3 in 1 damp treatment system will stop rising-damp block penetrating damp and combat condensation.
All Cure Total is available in two kit sizes. The smaller kit includes 3 damp injection cream cartridges for curing rising damp in walls and the standard kit 6 cartridges. This is sufficient Damp-Cure cream for the treatment of 5 or 10 linear metres of either 215mm thick solid wall or traditional cavity brickwork. For an effective chemical damp proof course simply follow our damp proofing guide.
The kits also include a 1m high mesh membrane in a length of either 5m or 10m complete with 80 or 160 fixing plugs. This damp proofing membrane has 3mm air-gap studs and provides a physical barrier to protect plastered finishes from penetrating damp caused by blocked cavities or high pavements. The damp proof membrane incorporates a nylon mesh on one face that permits the direct application of plaster or the use of dot and dab dry-lining to deliver a warmer wall surface that will better resist the onset of condensation.
To use the damp treatment kit you will need to drill 12mm holes at 100-120mm centres for the damp injection cream and 8mm holes at 250mm centres for fixing the damp proofing membrane to the walls. All Cure Total provides a physical barrier between a damp wall and its internal finishes thus plastering and decorating can be carried out on completion of the damp treatment without having to wait for damp walls to dry
