Ultracure is delivered by hand pressure from the appropriately sized applicator gun into a series of holes drilled into the mortar course.
From here, Ultracure© effectively migrates into the masonry pores and fully passivates across the mortar joint as the cream reverts to a liquid phase. Upon curing, a hydrophobic chemical damp-proof barrier is formed in situ. Extensive field experience with this technology demonstrates that Ultracure© will perform as well as any conventional liquid injection system against rising damp.
Ultracure© cream is designed to control rising damp, but walls can remain damp after a DPC installation where they are severely contaminated with hygroscopic salts. Replastering with an appropriate, salt-resistant product, such as Renovation Plaster or Renderproof, is essential to prevent further damage to the plaster finish. In all cases, the damp-proof course should, as far as possible, be installed in accordance with the British Standard ‘Code of Practice for Installation of Chemical Damp Proof Courses’ BS6576:2005.
