Produced to stringent performance standards and includes a pronounced emboss to improve mortar adhesion.
Has good cold weather flexibility properties, remaining workable at low temperatures. Visqueen Polyethylene DPC is manufactured to the requirements of BS 6515.
Installation should be in accordance with Code of Practice CP102:1973 as amended.
Normal good practice and damp proof course detailing should be followed as described in BS 5628: Part 3. Work may be carried out in all weathers normal to the construction of walls.

Storage and Handling
Visqueen Polyethylene DPC is classified non-hazardous, and is chemically inert.
The membrane should be stored under cover in a dry environment. The material is not recommended for uses where it will be exposed to long periods of outdoor weathering as exposure to ultraviolet light will embrittle the product. Care should be taken to avoid accidental damage when handling the membrane on site. When the weather is cold all jointing tapes should be kept in a warm and dry place until needed. Installation is not recommended below 5°C
