Effective Rising Damp Treatment
No Hydro Damp Proofing Cream (DPC) was developed after years of research and development into damp proofing injection techniques. No Hydro was designed with both DIY and professional contractors in mind.
The cream can be injected with exceptional results while protecting against rising damp. With No Hydro high-performance damp proofing injection cream, you’ll feel confident working anywhere and anytime.
Once injected all the ingredients activate and spread through the pores of the cement motor line, with the specially formed ingredients it cures to form a physical damp proof course protecting the treated walls against rising damp.
No Hydro DPC Cream is simply injected into pre-drilled holes along the continuous mortar line 4 inches apart.
Treating Rising Damp with a Damp Proof Course
The most effective and economical way to treat rising damp is with a damp-proofing injection cream. The cream is injected or hand-pumped into specially positioned holes in the mortar course using a standard mastic gun for the 380ml cartridge and a pump for the 5ltrs of No Hydro damp proof course injection cream.
What is Rising Damp
Rising damp is when groundwater rises up load-bearing walls in capillary action through the fine capillaries and pores of brick and mortar in a wick effect in walls that have no original DPC installed during the construction of a property.
The groundwater rising contains ground salts which are nitrates and chlorides. It is these ground salts that cause the contaminated plaster.
These ground salts are hygroscopic and naturally absorb and hold moisture causing the walls to become highly saturated, contaminating plaster, and causing the skirting boards to decay and rot as they are against damp walls.
Replastering After Installing No Hydro Damp Proof Course
With all remedial damp-proofing systems, it is important to remove and replace any salt-contaminated plaster.
When replastering you can use No Hydro Salt Inhibitor, our salt inhibitor is a high-specification plaster additive for use in sand-cement renders after the installation of a remedial damp proof course.
