FAQs

A two part epoxy DPM such as UZIN PE 480 is required, buildings constructed pre 1965 will not contain a structural DPM nor were they widely used for many years after. It is also important to bear in mind that early construction DPM's where only 300 gauge compared to today’s more robust 1200 gauge Visqueen linings, and may be compromised allowing moisture to migrate through the slab.

It is advisable to prime dense surfaces such as DPM's with UZIN PE 280 primer prior to the installation of a smoothing compound. High levels of atmospheric humidity and low temperatures can result in moisture forming on colder surfaces which can compromise the bond between the smoothing compound and DPM if a primer is not applied.
