Application

Suitable for above or below ground waterproofing or damproofing.

Description

A studded cavity drain membrane for use in waterproofing or damp-proofing specification. The unique patented undercut stud is dovetail shaped and this provides a physical key for plaster and render, or allows for the direct application of plasterboard on adhesive dabs. This is of particular benefit where space constraints prevent the use of timber or metal frame drylining, the installation of a blockwork liner wall, or where a direct render or plaster finish is preferred, e.g. a vaulted ceiling.


Platon PLASTER BASE can be used to deal with and provide isolation from, rising or penetrating damp, salt contamination and running water (when used in conjunction with Triton Aquachannel, P20 or P8 floor membranes and Aqua Pump Pro Sumps and pumps). When used within a fully designed and specified waterproofing design, Platon Plaster Base can provide a Grade 3 environment, as laid out in BS8102:2009.


Platon PLASTER BASE is for use above or below ground and unlike wet or liquid applied forms of ‘tanking’ it can be

worked on immediately after installation without waiting for drying or curing to occur.


Features and benefits:

  • No extensive preparation of structure.
  • Water is directed behind the membrane to a drain channel for gravity drainage, or a sump for pumped discharge.
  • Ingressing water is de-pressurized and managed within the system and not diverted to other areas.
  • Complete freedom of choice of wall finishes.
  • Rapid and straightforward installation.
  • Impermeable to water and water vapour.
  • Reliable ‘Type C’ Waterproofing.
