New water repellent and flood resilience measure

Monday, July 16th, 2012

New from Triton, Triproof Cream is an odourless water repellent treatment that improves the thermal performance of masonry walls and provides an easy to apply flood resilience measure. After application by roller or brush on to clean dry walls, Triproof Cream allows walls to breathe whilst protecting them from further damp penetration.  It can be used as a flood resilience measure for new and existing properties in flood risk areas.

Triproof Cream will improve the thermal performance of walls, by preventing the absorption of water that reduces the insulation properties of porous materials such as brick, concrete and mortar.

When first applied Triproof Cream appears white but within 24 – 48 hours the wall will revert to its original appearance.   Triproof Cream penetrates deeply into the wall and will provide protection from light rain within two hours of application. However, due to its penetrating nature it can take up to two months before its full beading effect is noticeable.

Triproof Cream is UV resistant and has a life expectancy of between 20 – 30 years. Call the sales office  on 01322 318830 or your local Triton salesman for more information.

Platon P20 now available in sheet form

Our Platon P2o membrane is now available in an easy to use, convenient sheet form.  The new 1.36m x 2.22m sheets feature deep 20mm studs which easily interlock on installation. Joints are simply oversealed using Platon Overtape.  The sheets are easy to use and handle on site, and easy to store.  Installation is faster and easier especially when detailing around service entries, columns and abuttments, and there’s no need to flatten out the product before use.

Platon P20 sheet membranes are manufactured to the same high quality as Platon P20 rolls and there are no additional costs when compared for installation.  More information is available from your local Triton sales manager or call our sales office on 01322 318830.
