Toupret adds to anti-damp filler offer
Toupret has expanded its Problem Surfaces range with two new anti-damp products that can be applied on both interior and exterior walls.
The Anti-Damp Render is a filler coating for covering damp, porous and untreated masonry. The filler has been designed to prevent the deterioration of decorative coatings applied over it. It is moisture vapour permeable, so it provides a breathable skimcoat barrier. When used on exterior surfaces it acts as a damp-proof filler, blocking water from penetrating the substrate surface. When applied to interior walls it acts as a water barrier while still allowing water vapour to pass, letting substrates breathe. This makes it good for basements and garages where damp might be a problem. It is available in powder form in a 6kg bag and can be applied as a skim-coat, with a trowel or a brush. Plus, it has a 1cm depth limit and a working time of three to four hours. It is ready to paint 24 to 48 hours after application.
Anti–Damp Treatment, available in a 1kg tin, acts as a moisture barrier that seals the substrate and blocks localised liquid in the wall. It comes as a loose ready-mixed filler and can be applied with either a brush or roller. Covering micro-cracks whilst targeting the damp, this Problem Surfaces product is also ready to paint in 24 hours and can to be applied to both exterior and interior walls.
