Advantages of Freezteq

  • Extremely Simple – Although you can employ a contractor to complete a Freezteq damp-proof course, the Freezteq system is suitable for use by anyone with a competent knowledge of DIY. The product in frozen form is easily handled wearing the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), and application is an easy process.
  • No Specialist Equipment – The only tools required are a hammer drill, a 22mm drill bit, (both of which can be hired) approved PPE, sufficient Freezteq packs, and the means to freeze the packs for minimum of 48 hours.
  • Effective – Technically, diffusion is the most direct method for the installation of chemical damp courses. Capillary action ensures that the released siliconates follow the natural pathways of the rising damp itself, ensuring that the damp course is deposited exactly where it can be most effective.
  • Efficient – The Freezteq ice sticks can be inserted directly into the mortar joints, which are the major pathways for any rising damp. This assures correct dosage at all points. Diffusion also prevents the collection of solution in large, unsuspected cavities and ensures that the damp-proofing is as efficient as possible.
  • Versatile – Freezteq can be used to treat any thickness of wall by simply inserting less or more of the frozen ice sticks, as required. Freezteq can also be used to treat all types of masonry.
  • Internal or External Treatment – Walls can be treated from either side, depending on the project requirements, allowing for flexibility for contractor and customer.
  • Non-Flammable and Odourless – No flammable liquids are involved; the Freezteq solution is totally free of fire hazard, whilst also benefiting from being odourless.
