Stormdry Masonry Protection is a colourless water-repellent cream that will protect chimney exteriors from rain penetration.
Applied to brickwork in one invisible coat by brush or roller – Stormdry lasts as long as 30 years, penetrating the brickwork to form a breathable barrier against water.
Safeguard Europe has also developed the Dryzone Express Replastering System, to provide internal repair to chimney breasts that are contaminated and stained with hygroscopic salts.
These are applied in multiple coats over several days while the Dryzone System can enable redecoration within a day. The system consists of Dryshield Cream and Drygrip Adhesive.
Dryshield Cream weakens the crystal strength of salts forming in or at the masonry surface as damp evaporates – the cream acts as a primer for Drygrip Adhesive while penetrating the masonry structure to form a robust bond.
Drygrip Adhesive forms a long-lasting bond resistant to both salts and damp. Once fixed, the plasterboarding can be tape-joined and skimmed as in ordinary drylining situations.
Safeguard Europe has also developed Renderguard Gold for re-rendering in situations where plasterboarding is inappropriate.
Improving the workability of the render, Renderguard Gold maintains its vapour permeability while being resistant to salts, so the wall will dry out without the new decorative surface being spoiled.
In instances where chimney DPC trays are required, Dryzone cream and Dryrod damp-proofing rods provide solutions.
Dryrod is comprised of a synthetic rod manufactured from advanced polymers while Dryzone Cream is a BBA-approved and patented silane/siloxane material. Both of which form a DPC in brick, coursed stone, rubble infill and cavity walls.
