The Damp Repair System
The use of chemical additives for water proofing have been in existence for many years. Products have been available for additives to mortar and external renders and are readily accepted. Damp coursing fluids are based on polysiloxanes or silicone solutions in a carrier solvent. The particle size is very small to allow penetration into bricks, mortar and other masonry products. Once impregnated the silicones start to polymerize and bond to the surfaces to the masonry creating a permanent water repellent water proof barrier. The product acts in a similar way to Scotch Guard which makes natural fibres water repellent.
The ‘Code of Practice’ attached covers the actual treatment in more detail. Variations to the treatment methods allow damp coursing to all types of masonry or stone walls.
