Safeguard has updated its essential product guide with a new, fourth edition that provides crucial information on specifying its market-leading ranges of damp- and waterproofing technologies. A result of Safeguard’s 30 years of product innovation and expertise in the sector, the 54-page guide covers the Dryzone, Stormdry, Vandex, Oldroyd and Brickfix brands, to name a few. Product areas include: rising damp, replastering, damp-proof coatings, condensation and mould, rain penetration, masonry repair, basement drainage, and tanking and waterproofing in general.
New to the collections are Drybase and Roxil. The Drybase range is designed for use when it is not possible to protect building materials and interior surfaces from the sources of dampness, like rain penetration or rising damp. There are three main constituent products to the range – Drybase Liquid-Applied DPM; Drybase ECS Epoxy Floor Coatings and Drybase Flex Membrane.
The new Roxil Outdoor Protection range consists of high-performance cleaning and waterproofing materials – Roxil Wood Protection Cream, Roxil Patio Cream and Roxil Wood & Patio Cleaner – that will keep hard landscaping and outdoor wood looking their best for up to 10 years.
These sit alongside Safeguard’s recent, yet now established and popular products such as Dryzone Dryrod Damp-proofing Rods and the Dryzone Express Replastering System. The Dryzone System provides a complete rising damp renovation solution – from creating damp proof courses to renovation plasters and mould-resistant paint.
The guide also details how Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream protects masonry or concrete from rain penetration, making it ideal for those who want to improve the energy efficiency of homes and reduce energy bills.
For those seeking to waterproof basements – new-build or existing – the handy guide is a great place to start, describing a range of waterproofing slurries and products from Vandex Super which penetrates concrete to make it impermeable, through to Oldroyd cavity drainage membranes and the Sentry Sump System.
The guide is supported by 200-plus technical documents which can be viewed and downloaded on Safeguard’s website www.safeguardeurope.com.
