Damp Proof Membrane Kit - 10m²
Our damp proof membrane kit contains all you need to damp proof walls internally above ground. Once the underlying damp issue is resolved, the high quality 3mm mesh membrane creates a physical barrier to prevent further damage and salt contamination.
The PermaSEAL 3 plaster membrane included in the kit provides an excellent key for a range of finishes. It can be rendered or dot and dabbed immediately after installation. This significantly cuts down the time of the remedial work.
The Damp Proofing Membrane Kit includes:
- 1 x Roll of PermaSEAL 1m x 10m 3mm Meshed Membrane (10m²)
- 200 x PermaSEAL Plaster Plugs 50mm
- 200 x PermaSEAL Sealing washers
- 1 x 7mm Masonry Drill bit
Membrane Kits for Damp Walls
The PermaSEAL 3 mesh membrane kit is ideal for damp walls. It is specifically designed to be applied to damp walls to isolate them from new finishes. The membrane kit’s PermaSEAL 3 mesh membrane is impervious to moisture and moisture vapour. This means they create a barrier between the old surface and your new finish. This effectively isolates damp walls and prevents any new salt deposits on the surface plaster and damage to decoration.
Salt Contaminated Walls and Damp Proofing
PermaSEAL 3 Mesh membrane is the ideal product for isolating salt contaminated surfaces. These surfaces can often appear damp in periods of high humidity. The hygroscopic salts that are contained in the surface attract the damp in the air to the surface giving the appearance of a darker, damp patch. This is often misdiagnosed as penetrating or rising damp. The membrane simply isolates the background contaminated substrate from the new finish alleviating any signs of damp.
Damp Proof Membrane Installation
The mesh membrane installation is straightforward. Once the underlying damp issue has been resolved or a new injection damp proof course has been installed, you can simply apply the mesh membrane to the wall. Follow these steps:
- Clean the substrate to obtain as flat a surface as possible. Remove any damaged, loose or crumbling plaster.
- Cut the membrane to size with a sharp knife or scissors.
- Fix the 3mm membrane (with the mesh facing outward) to the surface with plugs. It can be fitted horizontally or vertically.
Jointing - The 3mm mesh membrane can be easily bent around corners as it is a very flexible material. Alternatively, it can be butt jointed and sealed with PermaSEAL Fleece Overstrip.
Finishing - Plasterboard panels can be fixed to the membrane by the dot and dab method (minimum of 50% board coverage with the dab adhesive), giving a dry surface ready for immediate decoration.

good stuff but could be betterthis is a good quality kit,and it works.
however i found an 8.5mm drill bit was needed,any smaller and the plugs dont go in,the plugs are a little flimsy and bend,unless the hole is big enough.
needs fixing every 120mm i find or it feels loose against the wall.
you will need another bag of plugs with the kit.
but all in all im happy with this product,and being a professional damp proofer/renovation company,i can see us using this over cement based tanking.

if you want to do it right, use thisjust re done someone else's poor work, damp proofing failed, they drilled and rendered the walls but damp came back as they didn't do it correctly, i've just chopped off there work and re drilled and injected myself, fitted the above kit which was easy to cut to size and use on my own, first time i'd used it as well tbh.
gave the customer a option of wet plaster or dot and dab and they went with the dry solution which can be decorated sooner, fixed really well, could have done with some more fixing for me in the kit but then again i like to use plenty, loads of mastic, so maybe one tube of mastic less and more fixing?
wished i'd had this years ago, could have saved me loads of time and seems to be a lot better job, as im the one who will be also decorating and putting skirting back, this is quicker and for me loads better, clean and hardly any waste, apart from one tube of mastic left, as long as you remind the plumbers and other trades to mastic any holes they drill into it afterwards rads etc, can't see this going wrong in my life time.
