The Dryzone Drygrip Adhesive is a salt and damp resistant adhesive glue. It is intended for use when fixing plasterboard directly onto a masonry substrate, as its adhesive capabilities ensure a strong bonding strength. The adhesive is highly resistant to moisture and so is generally used after the wall has been treated for rising damp using the Dryzone Damp-Proofing Cream, although it can also be used as a general adhesive.
Even after treatment, rising damp can still have an effect due to the presence of residual damp. This can damage any new render systems that are installed, and so it is important to safeguard the new finish against the risk of damp. Dryzone Drygrip Adhesive is designed to function within a drylining system, reducing the need for materials that are susceptible to damp. The adhesive safely secures plasterboard directly to the substrate without the need for timber battens, but still leaves an airgap between the plasterboard and the wall to allow for the wall to dry out fully without affecting the new render.
Rising damp is a common problem in older properties where a DPC hasn’t been installed, or in properties where the DPC has failed. Rising damp is caused when water is drawn from the base of the wall upwards by capillary action. It causes problems within a structure as it can result in structural instability as well as persistent damp patches on the internal walls and floors. The only true solution to rising damp is by installing a DPC, however this is difficult to do retrospectively. This is why the Dryzone range is so effective at putting a stop to rising damp.
