Damp Proofing Cream Application
Start by making a series of horizontal drill holes through the mortar course. Typically, these are 12 mm wide and spaced 120 mm apart – check out our Datasheet Application Instructions for more details regarding particular wall thicknesses.
Carefully insert the damp proofing cream cartridge into the applicator gun and ensure that the pressure piston is properly extended.
Slice the tip of the cartridge to ensure that cream can pour smoothly. Securely tighten the nozzle cap back onto your gun for a more secure finish.
Carefully insert the nozzle into each drilled hole one by one and slowly inject damp proofing cream while withdrawing it. As you pull out, stop injecting shortly before removing the nozzle from the wall completely. Repeat this process for any remaining holes in your wall.
For larger areas you can use the No Hydro Damp Proofing Injection Pump
After the damp proofing cream is installed, it resolves into a water-resistant resin before curing to protect against moisture absorption. This ensures that dampness won’t rise up the walls of your home.
Replastering: As with all remedial damp-proofing systems, it is necessary 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.
