Safeguard’s Express Replastering System comprises a combination of materials to treat rising damp in approximately 24 hours.
The product forms a key part of Safeguard’s Dryzone damp proofing system – a complete rising damp renovation range that delivers permanent damp proofing solutions.
The Dryzone Express Replastering System is made up of three elements: a chemical Damp Proof Course (DPC) formed with Dryrod DPC rods; Dryshield Cream and Drygrip Adhesive.
The BBA-approved Dryrod DPC rods provide a patented method of delivering silane/siloxane DPC-forming material into brick, coursed stone, rubble infill and cavity walls. The rods are made from synthetic polymer impregnated with silane/siloxane, which is effective in walls that are highly saturated, very porous and either high or low alkaline.
The rods can be installed in warm or cold walls, requiring only a drill. Standard length (180mm) rods are inserted into 12mm holes at 120mm intervals along the mortar lines of a building.
Following the installation of the DPC, it may be necessary to replaster. Without replastering, dampness and groundwater salts can spoil decoration on the interior walls – potentially causing paint to bubble, plaster to crumble and wallpaper to grow mould.
Dryshield Cream is a breathable, salt-resistant water repellent which can be applied to walls affected by rising damp. The cream weakens the crystal strength of salts forming in or at the masonry surface as damp evaporates.
Dryshield Cream may also act as a primer for Drygrip Adhesive. The adhesive has been developed for ‘dab’ fixing plasterboard directly to masonry surfaces. It forms a strong and long-lasting bond and is resistant to both salts and damp.
Once fixed, the boards can be tape-jointed and skimmed as in ordinary dry lining situations.
Safeguard’s Mould Resistant Emulsion Paint is also recommended for re-decorating projects. The low odour and mould resistant coating offers at least five years of protection against black mould, even when exposed to persistent condensation.
