Epoxy Damp Proof Membranes

Permagard stock a range of Epoxy Damp Proof Membranes. These high build water-resistant epoxy floor coatings are designed to be applied to clean concrete. Once set, it creates a new epoxy DPM that will hold back residual damp in the concrete slab and prevent issues with rising damp.

At Permagard, we sell the following epoxy resin DPM products::

Benefits of Epoxy Damp Proof Membranes

Epoxy DPMs are an ultra-convenient way to damp proof concrete slabs, protecting surfaces above from rising damp. When installing an Epoxy DPM over concrete, there is no need for intrusive mechanical work - you simply prepare the surface and apply. This saves hours of labour and dramatically reduces costs. Even more time can be saved with the One Coat which cures within four hours.

Epoxy DPMs deliver the following benefits:

  • full protection from rising damp
  • a sound base for further floor finishes to be applied
  • easy to apply
  • cost-effective
  • minimal mess

Protecting against Rising Damp in Concrete Floors

Rising damp in concrete flooring is a significant issue. Any moisture in the slab can impact your final floor finish, causing costly damage. One solution is to dig up the floor and replace the existing damp proof membrane with a new plastic DPM then relay the concrete slab. This method is very costly and extremely invasive.

Our epoxy DPM products create a new damp proof membrane in a highly efficient and cost effective way. It’s a method that saves hours of labour, creates minimal mess and reduces costs dramatically. There is no need for intrusive mechanical work so you can forget about skip hire, concrete deliveries and redecoration costs.

Generally, a new epoxy damp proof membrane can be laid in two days and will be ready for subsequent floor coatings on the third day. For our professional One Coat Epoxy DPM this time can be cut down to just 6 hours and flooring can be laid the next day.

Installation Overview

Prepare the concrete as per the technical requirements. Then simply brush or roller the epoxy damp proof membrane onto the substrate and allow it to cure. Depending on the product used and the floor hygrometer reading, you may need to apply a second coat.

Once dry, it creates a new surface damp proof membrane that can be overcoated with screed, tiles or insulation for wooden floors or floating floors.
