Lime Inhibitor For Application To Concrete Surfaces
Newton 906 Lime Inhibitor is applied to concrete surfaces prior to the installation of a Newton System 500 cavity drain membrane waterproofing system, to prevent the ‘leaching’ of free lime from the concrete. Primarily designed to be used on new concrete structures, Newton 906 Lime Inhibitor should also be used to treat cut recesses in existing concrete slabs.
Concrete floors newer than 12 months The whole of the concrete slab or raft as well as the recess formed ready for Newton Basedrain or Floordrain Drainage Conduit.
Concrete floors older than 12 months The recess cut into the concrete ready for Newton Basedrain or Floordrain Drainage Conduit as well as 200mm either side of floor construction or movement joints.
Walls 200mm up the wall from the floor, or where a ‘kicker’ has been formed to a concrete wall, apply from the floor up to 200mm above the kicker.
Underpinned properties 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.
