Application

Suitable for damp-proofing walls, floors or ceilings in new construction or in existing buildings.

Description

A waterproofing drainage layer primarily used on walls but may be used on floors where depth of permissible build up is restricted. Platon P8 is manufactured from high density polyethylene (PE-HD). It is impermeable to water, water vapour, Radon gas and is resistant to the chemicals and materials commonly used in building construction. When Platon P8 is used as a damp proof or waterproof membrane it may be installed independent of the moisture content in the underlying substrate.


Platon P8 is recommended as a drainage layer on walls and floors within a drained cavity membrane specification.

Studs are formed in a regular pattern on the face of the membrane. The studs are spaced at approx. 25 mm centres in both directions and are 7 mm deep.


Features and benefits:

  • Tough but pliable and can be pre-formed around corners and projections without risk of breaking, even in very low temperatures.
  • The membrane can be easily cut with a knife, shears or scissors.

Platon sealer.

Butyl rubber sealant for sealing the membrane around pipes and openings.

Platon sealing rope.

Butyl rubber beading for sealing joints in the membrane, sealing the membrane around pipes and openings, and to form a gasket between the Platon Brick Plug and membrane.

Platon sealing tape.

Butyl rubber tape for sealing joints in the membrane and for use with Platon Wall/ Floor Junction.

Platon wall/ floor junction.

Right-angled membrane strip, used in conjunction with Platon Sealing Tape, for sealing junctions between walls and floors, and for sealing joints at corners.

Chemical resistance

Resistant to common building construction materials.

Platon P8 membrane is resistant to the chemicals and materials commonly used in building construction. A small number of aggressive chemicals ( e.g solvents) in large concentrations can to some extent attack Platon P8 membrane during prolonged exposure. If exposure to aggressive chemicals is anticipated, advice should be sought from our Technical department.

Temporary exposure to volatile solvents due to splashes or accidental leaks is unlikely to cause any long term damage. Tape or rope joints may need to be inspected and removed if softened or damaged.
