John Newton & Co
a long established privately owned company and the oldest established
company in this field of the building industry. We pioneered the
Air Gap method of damp proofing in 1931 with the introduction to
the UK of "NEWTONITE" membrane. In 1984 Christopher Newton invented
and developed a meshed membrane called Newlath to receive plaster
or render which has led to the current generation of high density
studded polypropylene membranes which we supply today and sold under
our registered trade name Newlath 2000
and the Newton 500 family of membranes used in our Newton
System 500 underground waterproofing system.
