Newton’s Damp Proofing System portfolio is expanding to include the Newton 802-DPM.
The 802-DPM is a BBA certified, 100% recycled, loose-laid, low density polyethylene damp proof membrane for use below concrete floors or screeds where no groundwater pressure is expected.
Newton 802-DPM is compatible with all commonly used building materials and can be sealed with Newton 809-DPC to extend the damp proof membrane through spine and exterior walls.
For jointing and to ensure the continuation of DPM , a range of accessories are available. These include Newton Waterseal Tape and Overtape and Newton Pipe Collar, Joist Liner and Pipe Sleeve
Durable and Puncture Resistant
Flexible at the lowest temperatures and resistant to both ageing and cracking, Newton 802-DPM is suitable for applications within domestic and commercial properties. In accordance with clause 11 of CP 102:1973, the DPM provides a barrier against vapour and capillary-held moisture. This ensures that floor finishes are dry and suitable for use below steel reinforced slabs and heavy-duty rafts.
Newton 802-DPM is suitable for more common floor construction, including suspended concrete floors, ground-bearing concrete floors or beam and block floors.
100% recycled, easy and simple to install with good resistance to elongation and tearing and high water vapour resistance, the DPM makes for an ideal product for damp proofing floors. Newton 802-DPM is available in 1200 gauge (4m x 25m), which is suitable for almost all damp proofing installations.
