Wallrock Dampstop Thermic is a completely new, technically superior, zero paper content, zero tar content product to our original Wallrock Dampstop, available at a very competitve price.
Rather than using paper based material, Wallrock Dampstop Thermic utilises a very tough, strong, rot proof and salt resistant polypropylene backing that will give a long service life even in very challenging conditions, bonded to a water resistant composite metallic barrier.
Each roll covers 5 square meters and is supplied in extra wide widths of 675mm to make containment of damp problems easier.
The rot proof backing can be applied directly to the wall with our Wallrock Dampstop Thermic Adhesive (coming soon), effectively blocking off the appearance of unsightly penetrating damp and staining. The metallic surface can then be covered with paint, one of our thermally efficient wallcoverings, paste the wall lining papers or decorative paper - we strongly recommend that the Wallrock Dampstop Thermic Adhesive is used for further decoration for the best results.
So, why Dampstop Thermic?
Not only does it stop the unsightly damp and associated stains, if the composite, thermic, metallic surface is left exposed, it will also greatly enhance the reflection of heat into the room - making the product especially useful in improving energy efficiency in the home when used behind radiators and appliances.
Wallrock Dampstop Thermic provides a damp barrier against penetrating damp. It can also be used as a heat reflector to reduce heat loss.
Before using this product check it is undamaged and that you have enough for the job in hand. Please return any faulty products, including labels, to the point of purchase. Claims must be supported by receipts and labels (where applicable). If in doubt please contact us through our customer helpline. Your statutory rights are not affected.
Wallrock Dampstop Thermic will help alleviate the appearance of penetrating damp on internal walls but we always recommend the root causes are also investigated and dealt with. For example penetrating damp can be caused by blocked gutters and downpipes, poor external wall condition, failing damp proof course and other local factors.
Instructions for applying Wallrock Dampstop Thermic as a damp barrier
This product has been developed to combat areas of penetrating damp that can discolour wall decor. If the whole wall is not being covered in Wallrock Dampstop Thermic, ensure the product extends a minimum of 500mm from the damp area for best results.
For application of wallcoverings to the foil surface use only Wallrock Dampstop Thermic Adhesive.
*Please note; the foil surface is not suitable for most types of alternative adhesives. When overhanging with an additional wall covering you should continue to use the Wallrock Dampstop Thermic Adhesive and not an alternative paste, even if a specific product recommends it.Other important advice and tips;
When applying lining paper over Wallrock Dampstop Thermic it can be applied at right angles to the Wallrock Dampstop Thermic which will guarantee seams cannot correspond with those in the Wallrock Dampstop Thermic - we strongly recommend our reinforced linings such as Wallrock Fibreliner. Applying an Insulation Liner over the Wallrock Dampstop Thermic such as Wallrock Thermal Liner, Red Label Insulating Lining Paper or Insulating Lining Paper Graphite+ will add a noticeable insulation effect and complete the transformation of your damp wall.
Instructions for applying Wallrock Dampstop Thermic as a Thermal Reflector
Application is exactly the same but the reflective surface works most efficiently when not covered with another wallcovering or paint. This makes the product ideal for application behind heat sources such as radiators and household appliances, where it will ensure heat that is partially absorbed by the wall is reflected into the room. The product has an A1 non-combustible core.
Warning: Take care not to allow this product to come into contact with live wires both during and after hanging, especially important because the aluminium Thermic foil is conductive.
This is a simple wallpaper calculator and should be used as a guide only. You can find the roll width and roll length you are after on the specific product page.Roll widths are provided in meters (such as 0.5 x 10mtr) so your wall widths and heights should be inputted in meters also.If you are purchasing an offset match product then you may need a little extra as there may be some waste. If you have any windows or doors in your walls you can simply ignore these. This will give a good estimate of required roll numbers.
