DampSafe / NewCoat DPM

A two-part, solvent-free, damp-tolerable, epoxy-based damp-proof membrane (DPM) that suppresses residual construction moisture and rising dampness in concrete and sand/cement screeds and can be used in situations where the relative humidity level is above 85%.

The high quality, low viscosity formulation is suitable for application onto damp substrates, allowing for the speedy application of flooring, coatings, membranes, levelling compounds and screeds.

DampSafe / NewCoat DPM is quick and simple to use and can be applied over cementitious screeds and concrete just 7 days after placement. It is applied by brush or roller in two different coloured, gloss coats, or in just one coat if applied above DampSafe/NewCoat 901 Primer.

    Key Benefits

    • Very damp tolerable.
    • Can be applied to concrete and screed 7 days after placement.
    • Solvent free.
    • Excellent vapour barrier.
    • High-bond DPM that provides a barrier to vapour and prevents osmotic blistering.

    Typical Applications

    Typical Applications

    • Car parks
    • Warehousing and storage
    • Garages
    • Plant rooms

    Suitable Substrate

    Suitable Substrate

    Correctly formed, compacted and prepared:

    • Concrete of at least 7 days old
    • Screed of at least 7 days old
