How does Dampout+ Damp Proof Cream work?
Once injected, chemicals in the Damp Proof Cream dissude through the mortar bed, spreading a water repellant resin. This creates a waterproof barrier to rising damp, which cannot then rise about the level that the Damp Proof Cream was injected. The Damp Proof Cream also acts to reduce the inter-molecular attraction between ground water molecules and the walls of the building, resulting in a reduction of capillarity, which causes rising damp.

Locate a mortar joint at least 150mm above external ground level. For internal walls, insert the cream in a mortar joint as close to the internal floor level as can be achieved.
Drill 12mm diameter holes horizontally in the mortar bed to a depth of 10mm less than the wall thickness at centres no greater than 100mm.
Remove all the dust from the holes.
If walls are dry or mildly damp, spray water into the holes until absorbed by mortar. This is a very important step as it increases the effectiveness of the product.
Fit Damp Proof Cream cartridge with nozzle supplied.
Inject the Damp Proof Cream slowly into each hole using a standard 400ml caulking gun.
Extend the nozzle of the gun to the rear of the hole and slowly withdraw the nozzle as the Damp Proof Cream fills the hole.
Holes in external walls can be easily capped with SkilledBuild Injection Plugs or alternatively use silicone, resin or mortar.
Internal holes should be plugged or plastered over using a suitable rennovation plaster, or by simply covering with a skirting board.
