Application

  • Newton 508 (M1): For use on walls, and vaulted and sloping soffits.
  • Newton 508 eco (M2): For use on floors. Can be used with The Newton PAC System for combined water and gas control.
  • Newton 508R (M1R and M2R): Floors, walls, and vaulted and sloping soffits. Can be used with The Newton PAC System for combined water and gas control.
  • Newton 508 Mesh (M3): Walls, vaulted and sloping soffits.

Description

High quality cavity drain waterproofing membrane, available in five variants.

Newton 508 is inert and non-polluting to drinking water, highly resistant to water, alkalis, saline solutions and organic acids, and not affected by minerals and hydro-carbons, and is resistant to bacteria, fungi and other small organisms. Newton 508R and 508 eco also exhibit high compressive loading stability.

Newton 508R and 508 eco Floor are also independently tested as an effective barrier to radon ground gases, with Newton 508R also tested as methane and CO2 barriers, and these are the membranes used within the patented combined ground gas and waterproofing system, Newton PAC.

Consult manufacturer's literature for relevant preparation and surface protection.

Features and benefits:

  • Used within Newton System 500, the internally applied waterproofing system that includes Newton drainage and pumping systems.
  • Does not require extensive and damaging preparation to the wall surface.
  • Quick installation.
  • Provides vapour control, and when used with humidity control systems, is capable of delivering an environment to all levels within a Grade 3 environment to BS 8102: 2009.
  • Resistant to rot, chemically aggressive groundwater, efflorescing salts and hydrocarbon contamination.
  • Guaranteed against deterioration for 30 years, and has a life expectancy of at least 100 years (has a service life that can be equal to the design life of the structure).

Product Reference

Newton 508 (M1)

Lightweight, and easier to fit to large or high walls and soffits.

Newton 508 eco (M2)

More studs per m² results in higher compressive resistance with less loading to the substrate.

Newton 508R (M1R)

Certified for use as a barrier to ground gases and is suitable to be used where the ground suffers from hydrocarbon contamination.

Newton 508R (M2R)

Certified for use as a barrier to ground gases and is suitable to be used where the ground suffers from hydrocarbon contamination.

Newton 508 Mesh (M3)

A strong polyethylene mesh is thermally welded to the face of the membrane during the manufacturing process. The mesh provides a key for plasters and renders.
