PB2 mesh stud damp-proofing membrane for use as a plaster or render base for walls that are above external ground level.
A) Clean the substrate to remove all loose debris and organic matter. Plaster should be removed as it can soften over time, which will weaken the fix of the membrane to the wall. If the wall render is in
good condition, it does not have to be removed and the membrane can be fitted directly over. If the render is damaged, local repairs may be required.
B) Loose or crumbling render should be removed and local repairs made. If the render is in very poor condition, all of it may need to be removed. Obtain as flat a surface as possible. If the wall is
undulating, better results are produced if the wall surface is dubbed-out flat with sand & cement prior to installation of the membrane rather than dubbing out over the top of the membrane.
C) A flat uniform surface to the substrate means that the plaster or render above the membrane will be uniform also and less likely to have cracking caused by differential thicknesses. If evidence of bacterial
growth can be seen, use a fungicidal product prior to the fitting of the membrane. If any evidence of wet rot or dry rot is seen, have it dealt with by a qualified remedial specialist.
D) If a new slab is to be laid as part of the works, it is preferable to fit the membrane prior to the laying of the floor slab with the floor DPM extending upwards in front of the Platon PB2 ready for the concrete
