Newton 601 Slimline is a high-grade flooring membrane used primarily for isolating moisture-sensitive flooring from dampness in the floor slab. It can be used as the floor membrane as part of Newton System 500, when the survey has ascertained that there is no risk of water entering through the body of the slab. Newton 601 Slimline allows for the installation of sensitive flooring to be laid above ‘green’, still curing concrete as soon as the concrete is walkable, usually two days, significantly reducing project times. With a loading capability of over 1000kN/m², Newton 601 Slimline is able to resist very high compressive loading and is suitable for use as a high load DPC within structural block walls, especially when used to connect the wall and floor membranes within Newton System 500. Newton 601 Slimline is guaranteed against deterioration for 30 years and has a life expectancy of at least 50 years (DIN 9001:2000) Newton 601 Slimline is inert and is highly resistant to water, alkalies, hydro-carbons, saline solutions and organic acids, and it is not affected by minerals. It is also resistant to bacteria, fungi and other small organisms. Newton 601 Slimline can be finished over with screed, 18mm or 22mm T&G chipboard or partical board. Laminate and timber flooring should be installed over a layer of 18mm or 22mm T&G chipboard.
