DELTA®-MS is made of a special high-density polyethylene (HDPE) resin. The membrane is remarkably impermeable to water and water vapor and unaffected by acidic or alkaline environments. Equipped with highly efficient additive packages, the HDPE is stabilized against oxidation and provides outstanding compressive strength, impact resistance, chemical and environmental stress crack resistance (ESCR).

***Remember to buy (1) Accessory Pack per roll of Delta-MS***

5' Rolls:

  • Please allow 7-10 Business Days for Delivery.

DELTA®-MS is the only dimpled membrane in the market that is being manufactured in a co-extrusion process, utilizing virgin polyethylene on the outside layers and post-industrial recycled HDPE in the middle. Thus the product is significantly more resilient to environmental influences like oxygen, acidic soils or alkaline environments (concrete wall), etc. Tests performed by independent and accredited laboratories prove the unrivaled long-term performance.

The membrane is vacuum formed in a dimpled pattern to create an air-gap at the foundation wall. This unique design allows any water getting past the dimpled membrane to fall freely to the footer drain.

DELTA®-MS is available in many sizes to cover any foundation with a minimum of overlaps and seams.

Product Application

The air-gap, which is created by the impermeable dimpled sheet, guarantees a safe separation between the foundation wall and any ground-moisture. Thus the membrane keeps water from ever touching the wall on its way through the soil to the footing drainage system. If water were to cross the sheet anywhere, the air-gap would allow it to drain without building up any hydrostatic pressure. The air-gap also allows the foundation wall to "breathe". During back-fill operations the tough membrane serves as a protection layer. If DELTA®-MS is used on top of sheet or spray applied waterproofing systems it provides highly effective protection from damages caused by back-filling operations.

Unlike any coating, DELTA®-MS bridges large cracks, ignores damage points and deflects water as well as soil dampness. In addition it condenses and drains away construction moisture, directing it to the footing drain.

DELTA®-MS is up to one half of the price of conventional waterproofing systems while offering a complete protection system for foundation walls.

This product can also be utilized as protection layer over spray or sheet applied waterproofing systems.

How does DELTA®-MS work?
DELTA®-MS is a dimpled Polyethylene membrane that utilizes an "air-gap" between the foundation wall and the membrane, which acts as a capillary break to stop water from reaching the foundation wall. The air-gap provides drainage for any transient moisture that gets behind the membrane and directs it to the perimeter foundation drain for evacuation. The DELTA®-MS is approved for use as a stand alone foundation protection system, generally not requiring the use of surface preparations (i.e. tar or asphalt) prior to the membrane installation.

What Building Code Approvals does DELTA®-MS have?
DELTA®-MS is approved for use as a dampproofing and drainage layer material as per the National Building Code of Canada, Ontario Building Code, and all Provincial and Territorial Codes adopting the National Building Code of Canada. It is also approved for use as a dampproofing and wall waterproofing material as per the International Residential Code and the International Building Code in the United States. It is also approved for use by some state specific Building Codes. Please contact our Technical Service Department at 1-888-433-5824 for further details.

Should I install DELTA®-MS to the top of the footing or to the edge of the footing?

DELTA®-MS can be installed with either method, however installing the membrane continuously out to the edge of the footing is considered “best practice” and provides additional benefits to control water seepage between joints of the foundation wall. We recommend installing DELTA®-MS to the edge of the footing.

How many fasteners are required to install a roll of the DELTA®-MS?
Based on the spacing requirements of the fasteners and the overall installation as shown in the installation instructions, you will require 75 fasteners/clips when considering the DELTA®-FAST'ner. The total requirement for the mechanical fasteners (i.e. nails) is 100 pieces. For more information on the installation you can review the installation instructions on the wrapper of the product or on the web site.

Do you need to spray waterproofing or dampproofing on the foundation wall before installing DELTA®-MS?
No, because the DELTA®-MS membrane is approved for use as a “stand alone” dampproofing/drainage layer (in Canada) and as a wall waterproofing material (in the U.S.). Under special conditions, the use of a spray applied system in conjunction with DELTA®-MS may be specified by the designer of the foundation. There is no compatibility issue between the DELTA®-MS and common spray applied systems. For further information you can contact our Technical Service Department at 1-888-433-5824.

Can the DELTA®-MS be installed on concrete block foundation walls?
Yes, in addition to being a building code requirement for below grade uses of concrete block, it is highly recommended to parge concrete block foundations prior to installing DELTA®-MS.

Water proofing material for Home
Very please with the Delta MS, and installation kit.John Stansberry was my first contact, very helpful in explaining the product, helping with my need on project in hand, and inspired me to order from Spycor. Plans are to do more business in the future with Spycor. Only recommendation, in the installation kit, concrete nails, should consider using the one's with washers on them, additional hold

Purchased MS 5' roll and very pleased with price, shipping, and performance to date. I AM quite puzzled by the exceptional price jump between the 5' roll and the next larger size (on the order of 3x).
