Timberwise DriPlas - Replastering Additive
Timberwise DriPlas is an additive based on an alkaline soap of mixed fatty acids, designed for use in sand/cement mixes following the insertion of a chemical dpc.
It is common in a wall suffering from rising damp for salts carried in the water to concentrate in the wall.
As the wall dries out following insertion of a damp-proof course these salts may be deposited on or near the surface and can give rise to efflorescence.
Timberwise DriPlas is a vapour permeable replastering additive designed to minimise the passage of liquid water through the pore structure of cement renders, thereby preventing the transfer of salts to the surface. Re-plastering should be carried out as long as possible after the insertion of a remedial damp-proof course. Ideally the new plaster should be applied to surface-dry walls, but in any case a drying period of at least 14 days should be allowed between installation and replastering wherever possible.
Timberwise DriPlas comes in a 5L pack. Price includes delivery.
