The damp treatment system, designed by Safeguard, aims to condense the process of treatment for rising damp, re-plaster and re-decoration to 24 hours.
The BBA issued its Agrément Certificate to Dryzone Express Replastering System for use on existing internal walls, to act as a barrier against salt and moisture transfer follwing the insertion of a chemical damp-proof course (DPC) system.
A BBA Agrément Certificate is awarded to mark the quality, safety and reliability of a product, recognising it is fit-for-purpose and has completed a series of comprehensive assessments, evaluations and inspections.
The Dryzone Express Replastering System was evaluated by the BBA on four factors: bond strength; resistance to salt transfer; resistance to moisture transfer and durability.
The assessment deemed that the system had a satisfactory adhesion to dry, damp and salt-laden masonry substrates.
The BBA concluded that the damp treatment system will provide an effective barrier against salt and moisture transfer, giving a durable band on both damp and dry walls, equivalent to that of traditional dot and dab applied to a dry wall.
The Dryzone Express Replastering System is comprised of three elements; Dryzone Cream, Dryshield Cream and Drygrip Adhesive.
Dryzone Cream provides a chemical DPC. Safeguard states that Dryzone Cream is three times as fast as its competitors and is safer than alternative chemical injection systems due to being odourless, non-caustic and non-flammable.
Dryshield Cream is the treatment system’s salt-resistant water-repellent that weakens crystal strength of salts forming in or at the masonry surface as damp evaporates and forms a robust bond with the masonry structure.
The third component of the Replastering System is the Drygrip Adhesive, developed to dab’ fix plasterboard directly to masonry surfaces, by forming a long-lasting bond resistant to both salts and damp.
As certified by the BBA, the system’s Dryshield Cream and Drygrip Adhesive can also be used to treat damp or salt-contaminated chimney breast walls.
