Dampcheck Plus is a BBA-approved DPC fluid that is supplied ready for use. It is injected into holes drilled in masonry to form a damp proof course (DPC). Injection can be carried out using an electric pump or by using funnels (gravity feed method).
Dampcheck Plus is non-flammable and is silane modified – allowing for faster injection times and more thorough treatment compared with standard DPC injection fluids. Because it is solvent-free, it does not cause a lingering “solvent odour.”
Dampcheck Plus has a multi-component formulation which means that it develops initial water-repellency quickly, but also allows further diffusion to form a more evenly distributed damp-proof course.
Consideration should also be given to the use of Dryzone damp-proofing cream which can be installed more quickly than Dampcheck Plus and virtually eliminates the spillage and mess problems associated with the injection of DPC fluids.
