Developed to offer an alternative to traditional plasters, Dryzone Damp-Resistant Plaster is a breathable, pre-blended solution; it has been designed with a porous structure to control dampness and salt migration in walls.
The plaster, which can be applied to structures while they are still damp, allows walls to dry out by evaporation. Application can also result in higher thermal resistance, which can, in turn, reduce the risk of condensation in a building.
Applied in two layers as a 5mm anchoring rough coat and a 15mm top coat, the plaster works to a time scale of 30 to 60 minutes, depending on variable factors, such as humidity and temperature.
A 2mm skim coat can be added to the application after 24 hours.
Safeguard’s Dryzone System can benefit from the product: it can be used for replastering purposes, after Dryzone Damp-Proofing Cream or Dryrod Damp-Proofing Rods have been applied.
The plaster can also be used to replace existing plaster that has deteriorated. By applying it in new-build and conversion projects, contractors can limit potential damage caused by minor ingress of dampness.
The plaster’s low compressive strength ensures that it can be easily removed at a later date, without causing any damage to underlying brickwork.
