Henkel Polyshield DPC HD 150 x 3mm - 6" - 6/ctn
Polyshield DPC-HD is a heavy duty bitumen Damp Proof Membrane laminated on to a multi layer high density high tensile polyethylene film.
Fields of application :
Polyshield DPC-HD is used as a damp proof membrane to provide a barrier to the passage of moisture or water from the exterior to the interior or from the ground to the structure. Polyshield DPC-HD is manufactured to meet the requirements of BS 6398 and should be installed as per normal building practice as detailed in BS 5628 Part 3 and in accordance with the manufacturers recommendation. It is highly robust to prevent damage during use in all operating conditions and will accommodate substantial movement in excess of the crushing strength of the wall loading. The material has been specifically designed to prevent the membrane extruding under the imposed loading conditions and will prevent ingress of water vapor during the service life of the structure. The special chemical modification of bitumen gives flexibility at low temperatures, high puncture and tear resistance and can be used horizontal or vertical damp proof course applications.
application instructions :
Polyshield DPC-HD is introduced at the construction stage, during the erection of the brickwork, block work or masonry wall using traditional building construction methods.The DPC must extend through the full wall thickness and it should be laid on an even bed of mortar. Overlapping the material to the same width of the damp proof membrane or 100mm minimum including sealing form laps. The method of laying, jointing and forming cavity trays should be in accordance with the relevant building regulations and codes of practice. Polyshield DPC-HD is fully compatible with the Bitustick* range of membranes to provide a moisture proof system
storage & shelf life :
Polyshield DPC-HD membrane rolls whether loose or on pallets have to be stored vertically in a shaded area neatly covered by a thick fabric and tied securely in a manner that will minimize exposure to sunlight & UV. The shelf life is 12 months if stored as per recommendations. Excessive exposure to sunlight, UV and other sources of heat will result in considerable deterioration of the product and reduce its shelf life.
health & safety :
Polyshield DPC-HD might leave bitumen stains on the skin and hands during application. The stains can be removed using solvents. Care should be taken while using tools to cut the rolls. Use safety gloves while handling. Disposal should be done as per the local disposal regulations.
