BBA Certified Damp Proofing from Newton

Thanks to its new BBA certified damp proofing range, Newton Waterproofing Systems, one of the oldest independent UK damp proofing suppliers, can now provide a comprehensive solution for rising damp.

To prevent rising damp from occurring in new builds, a physical damp proof course (DPC), such as the BBA certified Newton 809-DPC, is installed. However, in remedial rising damp situations the best method is to use Newton 804-DPC, a high strength and BBA certified damp proofing cream, to convert an existing mortar course into a new DPC. Newton 808-RA is then used as a render additive to prevent the passage of residual moisture and hygroscopic salts from the masonry to the new internal surface.

Collectively, the Newtonite Damp Proofing System can be combined to provide a BBA certified solution to all forms of damp, from rising damp to penetrating damp, residual hygroscopic damp and condensation.
