A ready blended coating that once cured, provides a waterproof Methane and Carbon Dioxide barrier. Triton TT Vapour Barrier can be retro-applied as a waterproof and gas-proof membrane to concrete, masonry and brick substrates or as an alternative to sheet membranes in new construction. It can be applied by airless spray, roller or brush to walls, floors and soffits.
Triton Hydrolock, when used with properly designed concrete, can be used as fully bonded Type A waterproofing protection as defined in BS 8102: 2009 for the waterproofing of new structures.
Triton TT55 ME is a two component polymer modified cement based, flexible, protective and waterproof membrane coating. It is suitable for either vertical or horizontal surfaces and ideal for areas which are liable to cracking or deformation on the surface, and can be successfully used at wall/floor junctions. The polymer emulsion additive imparts high adhesion and flexibility along with its own high level of water resistance. It is suitable for the internal and external waterproofing of concrete, sound brickwork and cement based elements of water retaining and water resisting structures such as basements, retaining walls, lift pits, swimming pools, construction joints, underpinning joints, balcony decks, bund linings or terraces etc.
A single component, polymer modified cement “tanking” system for walls and floors, designed to be applied as a waterproof slurry. TT 55 is a highly effective damp proof membrane for brickwork, concrete or any cementitious substrate. Surfaces to be treated with TT55 should be correctly prepared, free from all loose materials and contaminants and be in a sound and solid condition. For application to floors, TT55 should be applied directly to the structural slab. For wall applications, TT55 should be sandwiched between sand/cement render coats. For all TT55 applications, special attention should be given to wall/floor junctions.
A surface applied system which waterproofs and protects concrete in depth. Supplied as a powder which only needs mixing with water before application on: basements/retaining walls, concrete slabs (floor/roof/balcony), construction joints, water retaining structures, swimming pools, reservoirs, sewage treatment plants, channels and potable water tanks. When applied to a concrete surface, the active chemicals combine with the free lime and moisture present in the capillary tract to form insoluble crystals which block capillaries and minor shrinkage cracks to prevent any further water ingress (even under pressure). However the product still allows the passage of water vapour through the structure, allowing the concrete to ‘breathe’. It also protects concrete against seawater, aggressive ground water and certain chemical solutions.
Platon P8 is used as a waterproofing drainage layer applied to the inside face of basement and below ground walls and floors within a drained cavity membrane system. P8 is manufactured from High Density Polyethylene and is impermeable to water, water vapour or Radon gas.
P20 is a high capacity drainage membrane recommended for use on all floor applications below ground due to its ability to control free flowing water. The deep stud profile is designed to resist blockages caused by lime deposits.
Platon P20 is most often incorporated within the basement floor build-up and can be used above or below suitable closed cell insulation (contact the Technical Department for guidance), to accommodate the requirements for Aquachannel drainage. P20 is used in conjunction with Platon Sealing Rope, Overtape and Cornerstrip.
A unique, ‘plasterable’ membrane with no mesh layer. Platon Plaster Base can be installed on internal walls and vaulted ceilings above or below ground level. The substrate remains visible through the clear membrane for precise fixing.The unique undercut stud design creates a secure mechanical key for the plaster. Plaster Base is very flexible and easier than meshed membranes to shape around external and into internal corners – so there is no need to cut it at these potentially vulnerable points. (Traditional mesh covered membranes tend to be stiffer and the bonded mesh itself will resist folding around an external corner, resulting in a bulge which can be difficult to deal with when plastering or applying dot and dab plasterboard. Because this is much less likely to happen with Plaster Base, the result is a neater job.
At only 5mm thick, Plaster Base is useful for areas where space is in short supply.
It is suitable for use with sand and cement renders and most lightweight and renovating plasters.
Platon Plaster Mesh is a double layered cavity drain membrane comprising a studded HDPE layer bonded to an ‘HDPE twist’ mesh layer which forms a key for most common plasters and renders. As with other Platon membranes, Platon Mesh can be fixed directly to existing wall finishes without the need for extensive hacking off or preparation.
