Safeguard Europe’s Drybase range has been designed for use when it is not possible to protect building materials and interior surfaces from the sources of dampness, such as rising damp.
The Drybase range of damp-roof coverings, coatings and membranes provides solutions to a wide range of dampness issues, from small residential properties to larger industrial facilities.
The range includes three main constituent products; Drybase Liquid-Applied DPM; Drybase ECS Epoxy Floor Coatings and Drybase Flex Membrane.
Liquid polymer-based barrier coating, Drybase Liquid-Applied DPM resists penetrations of water, gases, salts and other liquids through masonry, stone and concrete.
Sealing concrete slabs prior to screeding or overlaying with underlay and laminate flooring; protecting wall and floor-embedded joist ends; and forming floor and wall junction seals in wet rooms are examples of typical applications. Due to its liquid form it can be applied by brush, therefore it is ideal for waterproofing around masonry detailing and other hard-to-reach areas.
High integrity, elasticity and durability is provided by the polymer blend to the finished membrane and is water resistant to 20 metres head of positive pressure and ten times ore resistant to methane than low-density polyethylene, when applied correctly.
ECS Epoxy Floor Coating is a highly durable damp-proof epoxy coating for floors and walls. Drybase ECS Epoxy Floor Coating is supplied as a two-part water-dispersed epoxy resin and applied in two coats using a brush or roller.
Drybase ECS Epoxy Floor Coating typically treats damp and staining problems in solid concrete floors, floor ad wall coating for food-processing spaces, warehouse and storage facilities, and light industrial factories as it is hard-wearing, stain resistant and able to withstand foot and light vehicle traffic.
Consisting of a pigmented base resin component and a water-dispersed hardener component, the surface finish appearance will reflect the texture and nature of the substrate. However, when applied, contract surfaces must be sound, clean, dry and provide a ‘light’ mechanical key.
Drybase Flex Membrane is ideal for walls that have been affected by dampness and salt contamination, due to highly durable and flexible membrane. Using the specially formulated Drybase Flex Adhesive, the fleece lined membrane can be applied to walls quickly and easily.
It is a versatile solution to the problem of damp walls as it can be plastered onto directly, when it is not possible to stop the damp at its source.
A wide range of practical solutions and applications are offered as part of the Drybase collection, when it is necessary to apply damp-proof barriers over floors and walls
