- Improves thermal performance of walls
- Provides flood resilience
- Suitable for use on concrete, brick and stone walls
New 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.
Triproof Cream is supplied in 5 litre tubs.
Triproof AQ is a highly effective water repellent based on a blend of Silane, Siloxane and Silicone resins. Triproof AQ is suitable for use over masonry, brickwork, concrete and renders. Superior performance is obtained on alkaline surfaces such as new renders and concrete.
Triproof AQ is available in concentrate form in 2.5 litre containers.
Unique water based gel for the treatment of rising damp
- BBA approved
- No need for electric pumps on site
- Cartridge gun or compression pump application
Triton's "new generation" DPC formula is a ready to use, water based and water soluble thixotropic gel which diffuses naturally into damp substrates. After injection, Tri-Gel reacts to form a water repellent silicone resin network within the capillaries of the substrate. This network is permeable to water vapour which means that the walls can "breathe" and dry out naturally. The formulation is not reliant on alkalinity for effective curing. Tri-Gel can be used effectively to treat brick, stone and other substrates.
Tri-Gel is available in 1 litre cartridges or 5 litre tubs.
Tri-Gel drilling pattern
A unique silicone emulsion cream for injection into brickwork etc. for the control of rising dampness. Tri-Cream can be used in all types of masonry without the use of high pressure equipment. The cream is delivered by hand pressure from a simple displacement pump and injector lance into a series of holes drilled into the mortar course. migrating rapidly into the masonry pores, the injection cream reverts to a liquid phase and polysiloxanes are formed in situ.
- Fast, clean installation
- No high pressure injection pump required
- Virtually odourless, low hazard
- Precise dosing
- No pump cleaning required between jobs
Tri-Cream is supplied in 5 litre tubs and 1 litre cartridges.
A unique, high performance DPC concentrate, formulated to produce a rapid injection, dilution stable water based DPC fluid. Triject Rapid can be injected into the mortar joints or masonry units (brick, block or stone) to form a continuous barrier to the passage of moisture rising from the ground. After injection, Triject Rapid reacts with carbon dioxide to form a water repellent silicone resin network within the capillaries of the substrate. This silicone resin network is permeable to water vapour which means that the walls can breathe and dry out naturally. Triject Rapid's high penetration properties mean that the risk of staining is significant reduced although care should be taken to avoid spillage.
Supplied in 2.5 litre and 25 litre containers.
Triject 3 DPC Fluid
Triject 3 is a water-based damp proofing liquid intended for injection into walls affected by rising dampness. Triject 3 can be injected into pre-drilled holes formed either in the bricks or the mortar joints to form a continuous barrier against water rising from the ground. Within the walls, Triject 3 reacts with carbon dioxide to form a permanent water repellent coating within the capillaries of the masonry. Triject 3 is supplied in concentrate form and should be diluted for use. The active ingredient is Potassium Methyl Siliconate.
Supplied in 3.6 litre and 25 litre containers.
Triton Injection Mortar (T.I.M)
T.I.M is a one-component injection mortar designed to prevent rising damp in walls. A blend of ordinary Portland cement, selected fine quartz aggregates and active waterproofing chemicals which when mixed with water, create a smooth slurry. T.I.M is activated by a chemical reaction beween moisture in the structure and waterproofing chemicals in the mortar, which form a crystalline growth that blocks the pores, capillaries and fine cracks in the structure. T.I.M is suitable for injection in most types of contstruction, especially thick or random rubble filled walls. It is odourless and gives off no toxic vapours.
Supplied in 25 kg bags.
Application Rates for Brickwork
|Application Rates Table|
|Injection Mortar Consumption - kg/lin m||0.6kg||1.1kg||1.8kg||2.4kg|
|D.P.C Fluid Consumption - ltr/lin m||1.5ltr||3.0ltr||4.5ltr||6.0ltr|
Note: Allow 10-15% increase in materials in other types of construction, such as random stone or rubble in-fill where fluid or mortar loss may occur.
A water and salt resistant additive for cement mortars. Improves workability of the mix. Particularly recommended for use in mortars used for internal cement rendering (replastering) of walls affected by rising dampness. Supplied in concentrate form and diluted for use.
Supplied in 5 litre and 25 litre containers.
Triton Renovating Plaster
Triton Renovating Plaster is designed for use following the insertion of a damp proof course. Once the old plaster has been removed and the dpc installed, Triton Renovating Plaster is applied before the finishing coat to hold back residual moisture and salts. The special formulation of this lightweight and cementitious plaster, which includes lime, ensures an alkalinity which inhibits mould growth.
Triton Renovating Plaster is supplied in 25kg packs.
A waterproofing and plasticizing additive for sand and cement renders and mortars. Improves the workability of the mix and reduces the amount of water required to provide a workable mix therefore producing a more dense render. Recommended for use in replastering of walls affected by rising dampness.
Supplied in concentrate form in 25 litre containers.
Electro osmotic damp proofing system
- Chemical free
- Suitable for virtually any type of wall
- Eligible for insurance backed guarantees
- Minimal running costs
Trimotic is a chemical-free damp proofing system that utilises the principle of Electro-Osmosis. This occurs when an electric potential is applied across a damp porous material which causes a force to be exerted on the water which then moves towards the cathode (earth).
The system involves inserting platinum coated titanium wire anodes into the wall at regular intervals. These anodes (which are joined together by plain titanium wire) are placed around the building in a ring main type configuration. One end is then connected to a low voltage power supply and the circuit is completed at the other end by an earthing rod (cathode) driven into the ground to a level below that of the anodes and at a distance of at least 2 metres away from the nearest anode. The operational system then provides the electric potential which stops the rising damp and allows the wall to dry out.
The system includes the anodes, which are supplied spliced into rolls of pure titanium wire; connecting wire, connecting crimps, power units, earthing rods, sleeving and crimping tool.
Installation of the anodes can be from the outside or inside of the building, in either case the internal rendering will almost certainly need to be removed due to salt contamination. The anodes are inserted into the wall via holes drilled from a mortar bed down at a 10 - 30 angle. The wire between each anode is placed into a 20mm chase or groove cut into the mortar bed. Doorways and other openings can be bridged using plain titanium wire. Following installation the anode holes are filled and the groove pointed up.
