Application

  • Suitable for use in concrete floors in domestic and commercial (schools, hospitals, leisure, shopping centres etc) applications in accordance with clause 11 of CP 102, where there may be capillary rise of moisture but not where it may be subject to hydrostatic pressure. Visqueen recommend if such a circumstance arises, Visqueen Tanking Membrane should be used.
  • Where there is a risk that the ground may be waterlogged, sub-soil drainage in accordance with CP 102 and BS 8102 should be provided.
  • Also suitable for applications such as heavy duty raft foundations, steel reinforced slabs etc, where a durable, robust and high puncture resistant membrane is required.

For jointing adjacent sheets of Visqueen DPM, DPM to DPC and DPC to DPC, Visqueen Jointing System should be used.

To complete the system Visqueen recommend the use of the following components when installing the membrane:

  • VisqueenPro Double Sided Jointing Tape.
  • VisqueenPro Single Sided Jointing Tape.
  • Visqueen TreadGUARD1500.
  • Visqueen Zedex CPT DPC.

Description

Visqueen High Performance BBA DPM is a premium grade damp proof membrane manufactured from prime virgin polymers for use as a Type 'A' damp proof membrane as defined by BS EN 13967. The DPM is yellow in colour and available centre folded in 4 x 12.5 m x 500 µm roll format.

The 500 µm membrane is manufactured as a centre folded product to limit creases with aids jointing and welding applications on site, additionally helping to reduce cracks found in structural concrete screeds where traditional multi-folded DPMs are used.
