Newton’s product portfolio is expanding to include 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.

The new product, Newton 802-DPM, sits within the Damp Proofing System, which now contains a comprehensive list of products that can be used in different combinations depending on what the scenario demands.

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.

802-DPM Added To Damp Proofing RangeDurable and Puncture Resistant

Flexible at even 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.
