Rising Damp
Protekta DPC    Protekta DPC Cream  
 

Damp proof course.

Protekta DPC is a solution for rising damp in brick or concrete block walls. It is a water-based, low viscosity, silane, silonol-siloxane solution, which has been specifically formulated to penetrate into wet walls. Once impregnated into a course of brickwork, DPC reacts with the materials. This durable polymer damp course permanently stops rising damp to make them hydrophobic.

Uses

It can be used for rising damp problem in brick, and concrete blocks

Advantages

•   Easy to product providing Alkali stable formulation
•   Provides permanent solution to rising damp

Application

1.    Remove skirting or floor board and plaster to a height of 1 foot to expose brick.
2.    In the case of 4 1/2” thick walls, holes are to be drilled at the joint between the 1st and 2nd layer of brick.
3.    In the case of 9” bricks, holes are to be drilled in 2nd and 3rd layer of brick.
4.    Fit 500ml plastic bottle with silane drip tube of appropriate length.
5.    Fill the bottle with Protekta DPC Liquid attach the tubing, invert and hang on a scaffolding (Lab stands) such that
       the bottles are higher than the holes that are drilled.
6.    Insert the drip tubes inside the holes made in the brick.
7.    Make a pinhole at the base of each bottle at allow air to enter.
8.    Adjust the rate such that the holes remain full but do not overflow.
9.    Allow DPC to continuously enter the bricks until they are completely saturated and DPC solution begins to overflow from
       holes. Care must be taken to ensure the entire exposed brick area appears to be wet before ending the process,
       the holes through which DPC is being injected may show signs of overflow simply due to flow rate of liquid.
10. This may take 12 to 15 hours depending on brick type.
11. Once complete saturation is achieved tubes can be removed.
12. Allow to dry for a day and plaster with using Protekta KR2.

Dosage : Depends on the porosity of the bricks.

Packing : 20L, & 50L (other sizes available upon request)

Caution : Highly alkaline product, use personal protection wear.

 

Protekta DPC Cream                                                              

Rising damp proof cream.

Protekta DPC Cream is a low molecular weight, low volatility and creamy consistency which ensure deep penetration and high quality water repellency in brick and concrete blocks. It penetrates into the substrate and polymerizes forming a permanent hydrophobic in the substrate, which resists water, chloride ion and other pollutants.

Uses

It can be used for rising damp problem in bricks, and concrete blocks.

Advantages

•   Easy application due to its thixotropic properties
•   Alkali stable formulation
•   Permanent solution to rising damp
•   Penetrates deeply into bricks and cement blocks

Application

1. Remove skirting or floor board and plaster to a height of 1 foot to expose brick.
2. 12mm holes are to be drilled at 1st and 2nd brick layer mortar with distance of every 4 1/2 “ in 90° angle upto 3/4th
   of the wall thickness.
3. Fill the holes with Protekta DPC Cream.
4. Plug the hole with cement mortar.
5. Allow penetration to occur for 2 days.
6. Replaster the mortar containing Protekta Emulsion KR-2.

Dosage : Depends on the porosity of the bricks.

Packing : 20L, & 50L (other sizes available upon request)
