Damp Proof Membranes are required to protect the screed and toppings from moisture. Various types of polythene are used to separate screeds and insulations from a damp substrate and generally used on ground floors to protect against rising damp. A 1200 gauge polythene is normally used in this instance and a 500 gauge is used as a separating membrane to ensure that the moist screed is separated from the insulation layer. Damp Proof Membrane is intended for use within solid concrete floors to prevent the rise of moisture or damp through structure flooring. Suitable for most construction damp proofing requirements. The DPM can be used as either below the slab application, directly below the flooring surface or in a sandwich construction, between base concrete and the screed. Manufactured from recycled polythene to meet PIFA and BBA standards. Our Temporary Protection Sheet is a blown film of extruded low-density polyethylene that can be used for a variety of applications, including floors, verticals, fixtures and fitting. Temporary protection sheet is manufactured entirely from recycled low density polyethylene, enabling users to protect the work-site accordingly. Our Single Wound Screeding membrane is a low density polythene membrane for use under floor screeds which are not subject to hydrostatic pressure, to protect buildings against moisture from the ground.
