DPC in a tin
24-Nov-2013
By
, Norfolk
"Right, house built around 1870 of chalk on chalk, dug into a slope with no foundations and no dpc. Floor screed (if you can call it that) a weak mix, possibly including lime, had become friable and permeable. Discovered this when I moved a free-standing cabinet and found the carpet was wet and mouldy. Coming to the end of an amateur renovation I really didn't want to take up the floor and relay it so I have used this product for a purpose it wasn't designed for. Scraped and vacuumed up as much of the loose stuff as I could, filled the holes and brushed on three coats of Aquaprufe then put down a rubber-backed paper covering before refitting the underlay and carpet. No more damp. Couple of points; the coverage greatly exceeded the manufacturer's stated six or so sq m., I would estimate 5ltrs would give a single coat of nearer 18sq m., and there wasn't a reasonable drying time ( I left 48hrs) after which I could walk on it to apply subsequent coats without it lifting - I wore old slippers in plastic bags in the end. If I do it again I'll put a good coat of PVA down first. In conclusion, I think this product is better than Bostik say it is, perhaps because they can't monitor the manner in which it is used, but it has saved me a great deal of money and inconvenience."

"In the past I have used another brand of damp-proofer generally as a second line of defence over coats of tanking cement on walls & floors. As this was no longer readily available I have recently tried Cementone Aquaprufe (2 tins), it appears to be as good as my previous liquid DPM. Be aware of its limitations, particularly when recently applied (water spills and tackyness). If used on floor before a final finish do blind with sand as it says in data sheet as shoes and kneelers will damage the coat's integrity. Coverage appears to be better than stated. If possible keep your brush in the tin or wrapped in polythene do not attempt to wash out as the brush will clog and swell with a residue."

"A very good water based waterproofing product for wall and floor. Minimum 2 coats on floor and 3 coats on walls. Easy to apply. Change direction of brushing out between coats to ensure total coverage. Where a black finish is acceptable don't hesitate to use Aquaprufe for your masonary waterproofing requirements. Use Screwfix for best value."

Easy to apply - works well
27-Mar-2014

"I bought a tin of this to fix a cracked, leaking bitumen roof on my shed. It was inexpensive and worked well.
Bear in mind that this stuff is quite thin - so you will need two coats to build up thickness. On the plus side, it goes on really easily (no wrist ache) and it seeps into cracks nicely.
It dries to a fairly glossy finish, which is not really what I was expecting, but it looks fine.
Tip 1 - you can remove excess or overspill with white spirit.
Tip 2 - don't clean (or throw away) your brushes until you have finished the tin: when you re-use your brush it softens straight away.
