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.

The Dryzone Express Replastering System condenses the process of treatment and room reinstatement to a fraction of the time required by traditional methods

BBA assessment

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.”

System specifications

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.
