Ultracure™ is a unique silicone emulsion cream for injection into brickwork etc. for the control of rising dampness. Ultracure™ can be used in all types of masonry without the use of high pressure equipment.
The cream is delivered by hand pressure only from a simple displacement pump and injector lance into a series of holes drilled into the mortar course. From here it migrates rapidly into the masonry pores where the injection cream reverts to a liquid phase and polysiloxanes are formed in situ.
During the curing period a low molecular-weight silane vapour is also produced giving excellent migration through the wall. Curing of the DPC starts immediately with the final cure taking 2 - 6 weeks depending on wall thickness.
Extensive field experience with this technology demonstrates that Ultracure™ will perform as well as any conventional liquid injection system against rising damp to form a new effective chemical Damp-proof course.
