Damp Duty - New Membrane for Rising Problem

Drybase Flex Membrane from Safeguard is the latest product in the company’s Drybase Damp-Proof Coatings range and is designed for direct application to floors and walls that have been affected by dampness and salt contamination and when it is not possible to stop the damp at its source.

A watertight, low-profile sheet membrane solution to the problem of persistent damp, Drybase Flex Membrane is a durable and flexible means of protection against moisture ingress which can be quickly and easily applied to walls using specially-formulated Drybase Flex Adhesive.

One considerable advantage of this installation technique to the contractor, compared to the manual fixing of pegged membranes, is that it removes the need for power tools and the noise, dust and vibration associated with them.

The membrane is a 1.5mm thick flexible polypropylene sheet with a fleeced surface on both sides and can be plastered or tiled onto directly. The two fleeces ensure good adhesion to the wall through the adhesive, as well as the direct application of plaster.

Drybase Flex Adhesive is a polymer modified cement-based product supplied in powder form ready to be mixed with water, and applied using a suitable trowel.

The damp-proof coatings range offers a wide range of practical solutions and applications when it is difficult to create or reinstate damp-proof courses or tackle penetrating damp because of, for example, access issues.
