Instructions for use
Application procedure may vary slightly depending upon site conditions.
OXISHIELD DPC HD is introduced at the construction stage i.e. during the erection of the brickwork, block work or masonry walls using traditional building construction methods. The damp proof membrane must extend through the full wall thickness and it should be laid on an even bed of mortar. overlapping the material to the same width of the damp proof course or 100 mm minimum including sealing forms laps. The method of laying, jointing and forming cavity trays should be in accordance with relevant building regulations
Installation must follow normal good practice for the detailing of DPCs, as set in the relevant clauses of BS 5628: Part 3:2001.
OXISHIELD DPC HD*
Oxishield DPC HD membranes must be stored in a shaded area on wooden pallets neatly covered by a thick fabric and tied securely in a manner that will minimize exposure to sunlight and UV. The membranes shall be protected from all sources of heat and extreme temperatures. The shelf life is 12 months if stored as per recommendations. excessive exposure to sunlight, UV and other sources of heat will result in considerable deterioration of the product and reduce shelf life.
Extreme care should be taken when working near combustible materials or items which might be scorched by the gas flame.
OXISHIELD DPC HD is non- hazardous, non- flammable and therefore can be disposed into any regular disposal
Area however , it should disposed only after wrapping with paper , plastic or cloth as the modified bitumen has tendency to soften under heat pressure which would make further handling very tough.
Health and safety
OXISHIELD DPC HD contains a very tacky bitumen compound which, while applied can stick to human skin. Such stains can be removed by using a cloth dipped in a very light solvent. In case the affected area is a sensitive area it is advised medical attention should be given.
