Whether they be below ground in a damp cellar-damp walls- above the ground or basement damp problems in buildings are problematic. in recent years although damp injection has been the most popular remedial solution but this has limited effectiveness above the ground and is not an effective solution in cellars, and certainly will not stop rising damp, penetrating damp or condensation damp. |
Near effective injected chemical damp proof course rising damp treatment need to be precisely installed to be anywhere. They are especially hit and miss in random stone and particularly thick walls and are often messy requiring the wall plaster to be removed.
It is vital to have the condition correctly treated whenever rising damp is diagnosed. not to mention the health risks involved, like asthma a great deal of damage and devaluation to any property can be caused by failure to do so. With a special paint in the hope that the problem will go away it is not sufficient to simply cover up the problem. Rising dampness be adequately contained only by preventing the dampness rising up the wall in the first place.
Up until now, injecting water-repellent fluids into the wall under pressure has been the most widely employed method of achieving this. It is known to have a number of disadvantages although this method has proven to be effective; for example, prolonging the drying out period into the wall, it introduces large amounts of liquid carrier. The process is also operator dependent and very slow.
The Dryzone System is fast, clean and effective.
Dryzone is a revolutionary new material for the control of rising damp Brisbane. To minimize environmental impact packed in a 600ml foil cartridge Dryzone comes in the form of a water-repellent cream. Into a series of holes drilled into the mortar course the Dryzone cream is introduced by means of a simple applicator gun. Before curing to form a water-repellent resin once the Dryzone is installed, to diffuse where it is most needed, it uses the moisture contained in the damp wall.
Dryzone has many advantages over conventional chemical injection systems:
• Easy to install - less scope for operator error, no "double drilling". • Concentrated formulation - does not introduce large volumes of liquid carrier into the wall. • Low hazard - non-caustic, non-flammable not injected under pressure. • Mess and spillage virtually eliminated - with fluid flooding through party walls there are no problems. • Consistent application rate - the amount of required material is easy to estimate • An electric DPC pump is not required - in situations where power is not available it can be used. Superior Performance
The result of an extensive development programme and in-house research is Dryzone. This involved the screening and testing of hundreds of potential formulations.
These tests demonstrate that as compared to the chemical injection systems that it has now replaced Dryzone offers a higher degree of protection against rising damp.
As an acceptable method of rising damp treatment the Dryzone system is recognized by both the Property Guarantee Association (PGA) and Guarantee Protection Trust (GPT). In the provision of long-term, independent guarantee insurance for remedial treatments the GPT and PGA are the industry leaders.
With the environment in mind Dryzone was designed. Its concentrated formulation means minimal packaging means less wastage and that fewer products have to be transported to the point of use. On silicones the formulation is based. From medical instruments to cosmetics and sealants these are used to manufacture a wide variety of products and are derived from quartz.
