No Hydro Salt Inhibitor: Premium Quality Salt Inhibitor for Plaster
After the installation of a remedial Damp Proof Course (DPC), it’s crucial to utilise No Hydro Salt Inhibitor, our high-specification plaster additive. Even when a DPC is effective, hygroscopic salts brought about by rising damp can attract moisture to the wall. Therefore, it’s usually necessary to remove salt-contaminated plaster and re-plaster using a salt-resistant render. Such a render can be created using a mixture of sharp sand and cement gauged with diluted No Hydro Salt Inhibitor.
Understanding Rising Damp
Rising damp occurs when groundwater ascends through the capillaries and pores of load-bearing walls, a process caused by capillary action. This phenomenon is especially prevalent in walls that didn’t have an original DPC installed during the property’s construction.
The ascending groundwater carries with it ground salts, including nitrates and chlorides. These salts contaminate the plaster, absorbing and holding moisture, causing the walls to become saturated. This process can lead to the deterioration and rotting of skirting boards as they come into contact with the damp walls.
Exceptional Features for Durable Results
No Hydro Salt Inhibitor is a concentrated admixture intended for use in sand-cement renders post the installation of a remedial damp-proof course, such as No Hydro Damp Proofing Cream. It offers the following benefits:
- Instills salt retardant and waterproofing properties
- Reduces water demand, enhancing durability
- Improves workability for an easier application process
- Chloride-free, ensuring safe use
- Maintains vapor permeability, allowing the wall to breathe
Choose No Hydro Salt Inhibitor for reliable salt inhibition and safeguard your walls against the damaging effects of rising damp.
