Part of a cavity drain system and designed to be used in conjunction with Platon cavity drain membranes. Triton Aquachannel is a moulded PVC drainage conduit which is placed around the perimeter of the basement or along a retaining wall, in a recess formed in the edge of the slab or within a spacing layer created by XPS insulation or sacrificial screed. Any water entering the below ground areas of the building is managed and controlled by the cavity membrane and intercepted by the Aquachannel. The clear space created by the Aquachannel allows the water to drain rapidly and freely to the discharge points leading to mechanical (sump and pumps) or natural (gravity) drainage.
Triton Aquachannel forms part of a reliable and maintainable waterproofing and drainage system. Aquachannel is available with or without an upstand along the rear edge, to suit the expected usage, eg without upstand when crossing a floor or when offset from a retaining wall, and with upstand when placed against the wall with a cavity membrane lining.find out more
A unique chemical treatment for the waterproofing, protection of concrete and increase durability – designed to be used as an admix at the time of batching. The active chemicals react with fresh concrete to generate a non-soluble crystalline formation which actively seals the concrete itself against the penetration of water or liquid, protecting it from the deterioration effect of harsh environmental conditions. Shrinkage cracks within design tolerances are constantly resealed creating a life-time active protection system. The use of Triton TT Admix within the concrete complies with BS8102 and is categorised as Type B. TT Admix is acceptable as a designated line of defence as required by leading buildings insurers.find out more
A BDA certified, pre-formed waterstop available in a ready to use roll which swells up to 270% when in contact with water. When fully encapsulated by poured concrete, the expansive forces form a seal against concrete surfaces to resist hydrostatic pressure and to stop water from entering the sub-structures. Triton TT Waterstop returns to its original size if the concrete and substrate is completely dry but re-expands to seal the potential leaking joints when water or moisture is re-introduced. Its service life is indefinite with a permanent water tight function and excellent resistance to acid and alkaline conditions. The product is extruded in a rectangular shape for optimal adhesion. The built in delay system means Waterstop will activate approximately two days after constant exposure to water and will resist in excess of 6 bar hydrostatic pressure.find out more
A range of one-step seals for formwork spacers and pipes, designed to offer a more effective, quick and secure sealing solution than mastic or a length of water bar – both of which can be dislodged during the concrete pour.find out more

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.find out more
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.find out more
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.find out more
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.find out more
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.find out more
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.find out more
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.find out more
Triton’s “new generation” DPC formula is a ready to use, water based and water soluble thixotropic gel which diffuses naturally into damp substrates. After injection, Tri-Gel reacts to form a water repellent silicone resin network within the capillaries of the substrate. This network is permeable to water vapour which means that the walls can “breathe” and dry out naturally. The formulation is not reliant on alkalinity for effective curing. Tri-Gel can be used effectively to treat brick, stone and other substrates.find out more
A unique silicone emulsion cream for injection into brickwork etc. for the control of rising dampness. Tri-Cream can be used in all types of masonry without the use of high pressure equipment.
