New Dryzone System Damp-Resistant Plasters
– Safeguard Europe is announcing the launch of Dryzone Damp-Resistant Plaster in early 2016, completing the Dryzone System range of rising damp renovation products.
Dryzone Damp-Resistant Plaster is a modern formulation of breathable damp and salt-resistant plaster that is able to be applied using traditional plastering techniques. It is ideal for use after treatment for rising damp or walls where residual damp and salt contamination is present.
Unlike the sand and cement renders that are often used, Dryzone Damp-Resistant Plaster is non-destructive to the underlying masonry, is faster and easier to apply, does not require gauging and presents a warm decorating surface.
For older buildings, Dryzone Hi-Lime Renovation Plaster will also be available. The plaster blend which contains a high proportion of natural hydraulic lime and calcite is highly breathable, quick drying and suitable for heritage applications.
The launch of the plasters will complete the Dryzone System range of products, which is designed to enable users to eliminate rising damp and renovate interior walls. Each product in the Dryzone System range is part of a system designed to enable the user to solve the problem of rising damp from start to finish.
- Find the Damp – Follow Our Comprehensive Guide – Rising Damp & its Control, our in-depth guide to the identification and treatment of rising damp, gives the reader a step-by-step insight into the causes, symptoms and methods of treatment available to them.
- Stop the Damp – With Our Patented Remedial DPCs – In order to stop the progress of rising damp through a wall, it is necessary to create a new DPC. The most practical and effective way to do this is to make an existing mortar course into a waterproof barrier, using either Dryzone Damp-Proofing Cream or Dryrod Damp-Proofing Rods.
- Replaster – Using One of Our New Replastering Systems – Walls that have been suffering from rising damp are often salt-contaminated and require replastering. You can do so using either Dryzone Renovation Plasters or, for situations requiring quick completion, you can replaster within 24 hours using Dryzone Express Replastering.
- Finish the job – Once the replastering has been completed and the walls have sufficiently dried out, it is then possible to reinstate the skirtings and redecorate the wall. For extra peace of mind, it is recommended to use Dryzone Mould-Resistant Emulsion Paint, guaranteed to protect against unsightly and unhygienic black mould for at least 5 years.
The plasters and full technical information will be widely available in first quarter of 2016. For more information or technical advice on any of the products in the Dryzone System range, please call us on 01403 210204 or submit an enquiry.
