Optimum Protection for all Thermal Insulation Systems in Roofs, Walls, & Floors
INTELLO® high performance vapour retarder gives structural systems a previously unachievable degree of protection from structural damage, even under extreme external climatic conditions.
INTELLO® with humidity-variable permeability provides previously unachievable protection in comparison to conventional vapour barriers such as PE-films. Maximum Security.
INTELLO® high performance vapour retarder gives structural systems a previously unachievable degree of protection from structural damage even under extreme external climatic conditions.
To prevent structural damage, the usual approach is to concentrate on reducing moisture stress. However, structural systems cannot be fully protected from the effect of humidity or moisture. Planned moisture stress produced by moisture vapour diffusion is virtually never the cause of structural damage, the usual culprit being unanticipated moisture stress that cannot be entirely ruled out by building design.
To exclude the likelihood of structural damage and mould growth, it is advisable, apart from considering moisture stress, to concentrate on the drying capacity of a structural system. Systems with a high drying capacity and a simultaneous reduction in moisture stress, as provided by vapour membranes/retarders with a humidity-variable diffusion permeability, like INTELLO® are still very safely and reliably protected against structural damage even if subjected to unanticipated moisture stress.
The numerous ways in which moisture can enter are a clear indication that, in everyday building practice, the possibility of moisture stress on a structural system can never be ruled out. When the object of the exercise is to build without likelihood of damage, the provision of increased drying reserves is a far more effective and reliable solution than any strict concentration on letting as little moisture as possible into the structural system.
