Coo-Var Damp Shield
An epoxy resin membrane that is tolerant of residual moisture in concrete floors. This enables earlier access onto the floor than would otherwise be available for the application of screeds, coatings and other floor coverings including carpets, tiles, vinyl and wood.
Coo-Var Damp Shield is a two-component epoxy resin membrane that is tolerant of residual moisture in concrete floors. This enables earlier access onto the floor than would otherwise be available for the application of screeds, coatings and other floor coverings including carpets, tiles, vinyl and wood.
Coo-Var Damp Shield can be used on concrete floors and fine concrete screeds, of not less than 50mm thick, in the case of unbonded screeds. The surface must be of sufficient quality, continuity and mechanical strength to ensure even coating.
The product may also be applied to polymers, screeds and certain types of smoothing underlayment's, provided these are well bonded. Such under-layments must be stable to the effects of water. If not the concrete floor must contain an integral damp-proof membrane to prevent further ingress of water from the ground.
Where laid onto a concrete surface where there is no DPM or where damage may have rendered the DPM ineffective due consideration must be given to the possible presence of hydrostatic pressure, and the consequences of creating a barrier layer resulting in the pressure /water flow being directed elsewhere.
