Damp Proof Membranes

The installation of a liquid damp proof membrane is a vital stage in the construction process, for both new builds and refurbishment work where a structural DPM may be missing or damaged, or where residual construction moisture is present in the floor.

An ARDEX Damp Proof Membrane will protect the floorcovering installation from residual construction moisture and rising damp, where the highest measurable moisture readings are present (up to 98% RH). They also have excellent adhesion to damp concrete even at lower temperatures making them ideal for UK site conditions.

Where a structural DPM is in place, and residual construction moisture is present, an ARDEX Moisture Vapour Suppressant can be applied to floors with moisture readings up to 95% RH, speeding up the installation of the floorcovering by allowing the early laying of an ARDEX Levelling and Smoothing Compound in as little as 2 hours.
