Roll weights can be in excess of of 5kg, hence appropriate care and equipment is required for unloading and handling.
Rolls of JUTA GP® DPC should be stored on stable/level ground and stacked no more than five rolls high, with no other materials stacked on top. The rolls can be stored outdoors when packaged but should be protected from exposure to UV. JUTA GP® DPC is classified as non-hazardous and is chemically inert, so it will not react with any acid or alkali environment when it is used.
JUTA GP® DPC must be installed in accordance with the guidelines laid out in BS8215:1991: part 3 and BS5628. It can be used in most common floor constructions and is installed in a similar manner to damp proof membrane. For external walls the DPC should be applied 150mm above the adjoining surface and should be linked to a DPM or Gas Resistant DPM in solid floors. The DPC should be applied to a fresh bed of mortar, completely free of projections that may puncture the material or impede the DPC from lying flat.
Jointing and Sealing
Sheets must be clean, dry, and free from dirt and grease before the application of jointing tape. JUTA GP® DPC may also be welded to the underlying gas resistant membrane.
