Triton Platon PB2 Cavity Drain Membrane 1m x 10m is a mesh membrane manufactured by Isola of Sweden. This roll is 1m high by approximately 10m long. and is a thin and flexible cavity membrane developed for use when damp-proofing above ground walls subject to rising damp, penetrating damp or salt contamination.
PB2 Mesh can be finished with plaster, render or plasterboard bonded to the mesh side of the membrane using adhesive dabs or Mega Stick foam adhesive.
Unlike wet or liquid applied forms of ‘tanking’, PB2 Mesh can be worked on immediately after installation without waiting for drying or curing to occur.
The return to use time of walls damp-proofed using Triton’s Isola Platon PB2 Mesh is significantly less than for other methods such as sand/cement renders or renovating plaster
PB2 Mesh membrane is unaffected by the presence of moisture or salts, making it ideal for use where conventional chemical injection damp-proofing and associated re-plastering might not work reliably or where penetrating dampness is the dominant problem.
PB2 Mesh membrane is ideal for:
- Barn or stables Conversions
- Thick Random Stone Walls
- Contaminated chimney breasts
- Listed Buildings
- After chemical damp proofing.
The membrane can be applied to retained sound renders, brickwork, block-work or stone, sometimes with minimal preparation when compared to waterproof rendering or ‘tanking’. Existing paint or lime-wash can be retained.
Retaining sound cement render can be a good option if the substrate underneath is known to be in poor condition. Gypsum based plaster, wallpaper and any buried timber must be removed as these materials can deteriorate over time and in the presence of moisture.
PB2 Mesh can be used in conjunction with other Platon membranes and is particularly useful for lining window and door reveals where the depth the reveals is tight and a thin membrane is needed. Simply join the different membranes using sealing tape at the corner of the reveal.
PB2 Mesh damp proofing membrane is tough but pliable and is easily formed around internal and external corners.
Triton’s Isola Platon PB2 2mm, mesh backed, cavity drain membrane should be installed with the studs (bumps) against the wall and the mesh facing into the room ready to accept bonding plaster or adhesive or mega stick foam adhesive to apply plasterboards.
