When should you use tanking membranes?
When should you use tanking membranes?
When to use tanking slurry? Tanking slurry can be used on a damp wall above ground to stop the passage of water. Ideally, you will want to identify and resolve the source of damp before applying it. Below ground, you can use tanking slurry by itself as a form of Type A Waterproofing (barrier system).
Is Tanking Slurry any good?
Tanking slurry, though, does an excellent job of stopping this mould and water ingress in its tracks. It’s equally useful both above and below ground level, which is why it’s also commonly used for damp-proofing wet rooms and wet zones before they’re tiled.
Does Tanking Slurry stop condensation?
Damp walls are cold which creates issues with condensation and in turn mould. Tanking slurry will deal with these issues and we apply it directly to damp walls. When the tanking slurry cures, it forms an impermeable waterproof barrier, preventing water ingress and damp.
Does tanking stop rising damp?
Tanking a room can help tackle mould and damp problems, as well as stopping water penetrating your building. If your inner walls are colder than your outer walls, condensation can form on them, and with condensation comes mould, unless you have adequate ventilation. Tanking isn’t just used in cases of rising damp.
Which tanking slurry is best?

Is Tanking Slurry breathable?
Drybase Tanking Slurry is fully compatible with the full range of Dryzone Renovation Plasters for achieving an attractive and breathable final finish.
How many coats slurry tanking?
Tanking slurry requires at least two coats. The first coat should be applied directly to the masonry, brick or concrete surface by brush in a horizontal direction. You should go down and across the wall floor joint and apply the slurry a 100mm onto the floor. The walls should be ready for a second coat in 2 – 24 hours.
How thick should Tanking Slurry be?
Tanking slurry can be either brush applied or trowel applied. On large scale jobs it can be spray applied but in the main, we advise the use of a good quality masonry brush. Above ground damp proofing typically only require a one coat application of 1.5 or 2mm thick.

What kind of slurry is used for wall tanking?
Cementitious tanking slurry – a paint-like substance that has been chemically engineered to form a protective barrier when applied to internal walls. Waterproof tanking membrane – a plastic sheet barrier designed to achieve the same aim. Let’s explore these two tanking options in more detail. What is cementitious tanking slurry?
Do you mix permaseal tanking slurry with water?
Assuming you have mixed our PermaSEAL tanking slurry to the correct powder to water ratio, the tanking slurry consistency should take on a silky batter-like consistency. The mix has to be applied to the wall evenly using a tanking brush which is not possible if you mix the slurry too thick. What are tanking membranes?
Can you use slurry as a waterproofing system?
Below ground, you can use tanking slurry by itself as a form of Type A Waterproofing (barrier system). This offers you reliable protection from water ingress. Having said that, many people like the reassurance of drained protection with a cavity drainage system ( wall & floor membranes and sump pumps ).
Which is the best type of tanking membrane?
