DAMCOR Insulating Vertical DPCM
A complete and simple solution to thermal bridging where the cavity is closed. Combining advantages of expanded Polystyrene and Polyethylene DPC, DAMCOR is designed to prevent the problem of cold bridging around window and door openings in traditional cavity constructions. At these points in the structure, condensation with possible consequential staining and mould growth, can occur at the reveals due to the lack of insulation where the cavity is closed.
The product is simply placed in the cavity with the DPC overlap trapped between the window/door frame and the exterior brickwork. No special fixings or installation techniques are necessary. The product can be rolled or folded. It is easily cut with a knife or trowel and can be lap-jointed with no loss of thermal efficiency. No material need ever be wasted.
Expanded Polystyrene to BS:3837:1986. Polythylene DPC to BS 6515.
Supplied in 6 metre rolls. 165mm DPC x 100m insulation (8 per pack) 225mm DPC x 150m insulation (6 per pack).
DAMCOR can be manufactured to special order with DPC widths up to 800mm.
DAMCOR vertical insulating DPC positioned in cavity prior to installation of window frame. It can be built in as the brickwork proceeds. Where lapjoints occur, a minimum of 100mm DPC is recommended, with EPS insulation strips tightly butted.
