Cavity Drain Membrane for Basement Waterproofing: Newton 508

Newton Waterproofing Systems (John Newton & Company)

Newton 508 is a high quality cavity drain waterproofing membrane for basement waterproofing suitable for use internally below the ground to retaining walls, vaulted soffits and floors. Newton 508 is the most commonly used membrane within our Newton System 500 Basement Waterproofing that includes Newton drainage and pumping systems.

Newton 508 is guaranteed against deterioration for 30 years, and has a life expectancy of at least 50 years (DIN 9001:2000) and is supported by BBA Certification Number 94/3010.

Newton 508 is inert with high compressive loading stability. It is highly resistant to water, alkalies, saline solutions and organic acids, and it is not effected by minerals and hydrocarbons. It is also impervious to root penetration, is rot-proof and resistant to bacteria, fungi and other small organisms. Newton 508 is also independently tested as being an effective barrier to methane and radon ground gasses and is the membrane used within our patented combined ground gas and waterproofing system, Newton PAC. Newton 508 is completely inert and is non-polluting to drinking water.
