DMX Drain 5X™

Residential Applications
For Horizontal and Vertical Drainage Applications

DMX Drain 5X™

DMX uses a specially formulated 100% Virgin High Density Polyethylene that provides a high environmental stress crack resistance to alkalies and acids found in the soil..

Our special extrusion process utilizes low heat and low shear to prevent heat degradation in the final product. The use of antioxidants and lubricants further ensure a smooth, superior quality membrane that outperforms the competition.


DMX Drain 5X™ compliments a liquid applied or sheet applied waterproofing product for a total systems approach to waterproofing.

DMX Drain 5X drainage board provides excellent ground water drainage for ICF, residential and light commercial foundations. DMX Drain 5X can be used as a stand-alone drainage board or used in pairing with a peel and stick/spray applied waterproofing membrane for a total waterproofing system approach.
