Rising Damp Kit
Rising damp kit comprising 3 litres of DPC injection cream and 5 litres of waterproofer/ plastering additive. This kit has everything needed for damp proofing 30m of single leaf wall or 15m for 9" walls.
The cream is formulated without thickening agents, using an emulsification process to produce a 100% active damp proofing cream that migrates rapidly into pores in damp walls to form a chemical damp proof course.
The waterproofring plastering additive is diluted and mixed with the render mix to act as a salt inhibiting layer during the later stages of the drying out phase. Replacement of damp wall plaster is a vital part of treating rising damp in walls.
Rising Damp Kit includes:
- 8 x 380ml cartridges of damp proof cream
- 1 x 5L integral waterproofing additive
- 1 x 12mm x 160mm professional SDS drill bit
- 1 x 12mm x 260mm professional SDS drill bit
- 1 x injection extension tube
- 1 x Heavy duty caulking gun
- 1 x Pair of protective gloves
Consumption rate - 115mm wall = 3.8m / tube of DPC injection cream
Consumption rate - 230mm wall = 1.9m / tube of DPC injection cream
*Approximation only - allows 5-10% wastage
To treat rising damp you need to:
Remove plaster and skirting boards and drill 12mm hole at 100-120mm intervals into bed joint to a depth of 90% of wall thickness. Simply fill the bore with the DPC cream to within 1cm of wall surface. Dilute additive with 25l of clean water to make render mix. Replaster the walls, ensuring the render does not bridge the line of the DPC, and renew or refit skirting boards. Allow 1 month per inch of wall for the rising damp to fully dry out.
