What is an Epoxy Damp Proof Membrane?

An epoxy damp proof membrane is a 2-part surface primer. After being mixed, it can be brushed onto concrete floors and screeds to provide a protective layer that enhances the durability, UV resistance, abrasion resistance, and strength of floor coatings.

Our two-part epoxy damp proof membrane provides excellent adhesion to any damp cementitious surface. Once it has dried, the membrane provides a dry barrier against moisture below.

These properties make it an excellent choice for damp proofing underground car parks, basement garages, retaining walls, tunnels, and cellars. It is also useful for applying between a concrete floor and a vinyl or timber overlay, to ensure moisture does not move into the top layers of your flooring.

CPR 400 – Epoxy Damp Proof Membrane is  our two-part epoxy damp proof membrane and comes in multiple sizes including:

  • Epoxy damp proof membrane 1kg
  • Epoxy damp proof membrane 5kg
  • Epoxy damp proof membrane 10kg

Benefits of Using An Epoxy Damp Proof Membrane

Here are just a few of the advantages of applying an Epoxy Damp Proof Membrane to a surface:

Can be used as both a primer and waterproofing agent –You can apply epoxy damp proof membrane as a standalone waterproofing agent or add a layer of paint on top. It is also a great choice for waterproofing a floor before laying timber, vinyl, or carpet on top.

Cures very quickly – A two-part epoxy damp proof membrane can be applied to any damp cementitious surface and cures in as little as 12 hours. Once it has cured, it creates an impermeable layer which prevents moisture from traveling through to the surface of the concrete slab.

Works well as a remedial solution –You can apply an epoxy damp proof paint to a concrete floor that already has a significant damp problem in order to seal it. It is a much cheaper option than digging up the existing floor and replacing it completely.

Excellent adhesion to a variety of materials – Epoxy damp proof membrane can be applied to a wide variety of materials, including concrete, brick, masonry, concrete blocks, and fiberglass.

Protects your concrete floor- The dry membrane will help to protect the surface from bacterial, chemical, and abrasion damage. If a layer of paint is applied on top of the primer, it will enjoy an increased lifespan due to improve adherence.

Safe for the environment – Our liquid epoxy damp proof membrane products are water-based, non-toxic, and non-flammable. They are an environmentally friendly option suitable for modern buildings.
