Injection treatment against rising damp for walls
proPERLA® DPC is a transparent treatment for porous surfaces, which is applied in homes with rising damp problems.
By stopping water penetrating into the wall, proPERLA® DPC improves the look and feeling of your home.
proPERLA® DPC has been developed with the latest nanotechnology and has successfully passed several tests, meeting the WTA (Wissenschaftlich-Technische Arbeitsgemeinschaft) and the CSTC (CENTER SCIENTIFIQUE ET TECHNIQUE DE LA CONSTRUCTION) requirements. It has been classified as a treatment with excellent performance for masonry works, reducing water absorption by more than 95%.
It’s when moisture is absorbed from the foundations up into the walls of a building.
The humidity from the ground rise little by little, getting into the pores of the materials that make up the walls, causing serious deterioration.
Rising damp can cause disintegration of plaster, paint and wallpaper. If you don’t protect your home against moisture, it can become harmful to your health, being uninhabitable or simply difficult to sell.

The ultimate protection against rising damp
Carrying out a study to determine where the humidity is coming from and where to drill to fix the problem.
The product creates a vertical barrier that prevents moisture rising up into the wall from the foundation.
The entire area affected by humidity is rehabilitated using proPERLA® Facade Coating, a water-repellent, self-cleaning and superhydrophobic paint.
We have prepared a page so that you can understand how the rising damp treatment works and contact a local professional.
The entire network of official proPERLA® applicators have received specialized training to understand and explain to their clients the properties and benefits of our products, as well as the correct method to prepare the surface and apply the products.
If you choose an authorized applicator by proPERLA®, the product will have optimal performance and will comply with its useful lifespan and warranty.
Under normal circumstances, the product is applied when the property already has serious humidity problems.
This means that the wall will still be visibly affected. What we recommend is to rehabilitate the entire affected area and, for this, that you hire one of our official applicators.
These should be 10 cm height from the ground and about 11-12 cm between each hole. The product must be applied in non-hollow areas, generally in the mortar joint between bricks.
It doesn’t matter if the house is old or new. Humidity affects both equally. The product works equally well on both.
It will only work in those that are composed by mineral construction materials.
In the event that the product has been applied incorrectly, it probably will have to be applied again. However, if done right, the product has a shelf life of 20 years. Therefore, we recommend hiring professionals.
No, it only avoids rising damp.
The first thing to do is to study where the humidity is coming from and its scope, before starting to drill into the wall.
Once we know the origin of the humidity, small horizontal perforations are made in the wall and the product is injected through them.
The cream expands and hardens, creating a horizontal barrier that prevents moisture from rising.
