For concrete floors newer than 12 months, it should be used on the whole concrete slab or raft as well as the recess formed, ready for Newton Basedrain or Floordrain Drainage Conduit.
For concrete floors older than 12 months, it should be used on the recess cut into the concrete ready for Newton Basedrain or Floordrain Drainage Conduit as well as on a 200mm are either side of floor construction or movement joints.
For walls, it should be used to a height of 200mm from the floor, or where a ‘kicker’ has been formed to a concrete wall and applied from the floor up to 200mm above the kicker.
Underpinned properties will require application to 200mm either side of the joints. Dry-packed areas should be sealed with a cement based tanking product and then the tanking treated with Newton Lime Inhibitor.
