After the installation of the new Tech-Dry damp course system we recommend to wait a minimum dry out time of 3 – 6 months (dependent on wall thickness). After this time the old affected hard plasters / renders can be removed from the wall. They can then be replaced with a render coat containing the Tech-Dry Salt Retarder. White coat can be applied to match if required.
TECH-DRY SALT RETARDER is a water repellent admixture. It inhibits the transfer of salts into the newly plastered/rendered surface. It is recommended to be used in the render coat after a Tech-Dry Damp Course Installation. Using SALT RETARDER in these renders eliminates the need for separate plasticisers and water-proofing additives.
SALT RETARDER should be used during rendering to waterproof / salt proof newly constructed walls. It should also be used in older walls after the installation of a Tech-Dry damp proof course to prevent residual salt and water migration.

- Improves workability
- Dramatically reduces efflorescence
- Readily dissolves in water
