Polyethelyne Films and Damp Proof Membranes

Polyethylene Damp Proof Course (DPC) is designed to prevent the passage of moisture in brick and block work from external sources. Polyethylene DPC is manufactured from high quality reprocessed materials to provide a cost effective and durable domestic grade damp proof course.


Polyethylene DPC is suitable for use in vertical and horizontal applications throughout two storey domestic constructions. Polyethylene DPC is produced to stringent performance standards and includes a pronounced emboss to improve mortar adhesion.

Polyethylene DPC has good cold weather flexibility properties, remaining workable at low temperatures. Polyethylene DPC is manufactured to the requirements of BS 6515.

  • CE Mark to EN 14909
  • Conforms to the requirements of BS 6515.
  • Cost effective damp proof course for domestic construction.
  • Embossed to assist mortar adhesion.
  • Proven performance over many years.
  • Manufactured from the highest quality reprocessed materials.
  • Safe and clean to handle.

Pitch Polymer DPC

A BBA approved high performance polymeric DPC which is suitable for providing damp proofing and cavity trays in a range of applications in both solid and cavity wall construction. This tough and durable product is resistant to compression even under the heaviest of high compressive loads. It has good flexibility at low temperatures.

Damp Proof Membranes

BBA and PIFA approved Damp Proof Membranes for use below solid concrete floors in compliance with the relevant Building Control regulations. Manufactured from low density polyethylene (LDPE), it consists of a comprehensive range of 250mu (1000 gauge) 300mu (1200 gauge) and 500mu (2000 gauge) sizes. The products can withstand rough site handling and have a high puncture resistance.

Temporary Protective Sheeting (Medium / Heavy Duty)

Normally used internally whilst buildings undergo refurbishment or in construction. A temporary high performance protection material used to protect floor and vertical applications. Easy to tailor fit as it only needs to be cut into shape, durable, tear resistant and contains dirt and spillages.

Not recommended for use as a damp proof course

Uses: General protection in storage or transit. To protect and cover internally as construction work is carried out. Easy to tailor fit as it only needs to be cut into shape.

Heavy Duty Builders Film

Durable poly sheet film for use on building sites or general areas where strong cover or underlay is required.

Uses: Temporary weather protection during building, Moisture barrier under concrete slabs, Protects plants from birds and frost, Drop sheet.

DPC Lap Sealer

Shell Tixophalte is a plastic–elastic neutral hardening mastic based on a thixotropic, high quality, modified, ready-to-use bituminous compound. It has excellent deformation resistance and adheres to a wide range of building products. It can be applied cold as a filler, joint sealer or adhesive for a wide variety of jobs, from large scale industrial to domestic. Its waterproofing properties mean it can be applied underwater.

Tanking Membrane

Bondit Bitubond Tanking membrane is a cold applied, high performance, self adhesive, bitumen waterproofing sheet membrane. It is typically used as an internal and external basement or substructure tanking system or ground level DPM particularly where there is a large unobstructed area to be waterproofed. One side is covered in bitumen and one side is covered in a high-density 2-ply, cross-laminated polythene film.

The underside is protected by a release sheet, which is removed prior to the bonding of the material. Priming the area to be covered with a bituminous primer before application will improve the adhesion. Chemically resistant, the product provides effective external protection against aggressive soils, dilute acids or alkalis.

Hydro-Pruf/Liquid Tanking

A high performance, brush applied, damp proof coating consisting of a rubber bitumen emulsion which, when applied, provides a waterproof and vapour resistant barrier. The product, which bonds to a range of building materials, has excellent flexibility and crack resistance even at low temperatures.

Hydro-pruf can be used as a damp proof membrane and water repellent coating prior to masonry work taking place. It is recommended that a minimum of two coats are applied.


HDPE dimpled sheet membrane for the protection of foundation waterproofing

The dimpled faced membrane FONDPLAST is applied on foundation walls to protect the waterproofing layer during the stage of back filling, as well as during any settlement of the building itself. Furthermore it will provide an excellent mechanical antiroot barrier.

The FONDPLAST membrane is a high density extruded polyethylene sheet (HDPE) and can be applied both as a vertical protection or as a horizontal protection against rising damp.

The product remains stable in time, does not contaminate the water to which it comes into contact and does not release any polluting substances.

Building Paper

Useful in a wide variety of construction applications, including roofing, flooring, and as a general jobsite protective covering. When used as an inner liner in wall, roofing, or wood flooring applications, it acts as a separation barrier, protecting against wind and dust infiltration, while minimizing squeaks. It is compatible with coal tar and asphalt-based roofing systems.

Mariseal 600

Mariseal 600 is a permanent elastic, liquid applied, two component, asphalt extended polyurethane waterproofing membrane used for long lasting protection and waterproofing of foundations and retaining walls.

When applied it creates a seamless, highly elastic, waterproofing membrane without joints or leak possibilities.
