VaproShield Webinar: Are Highly Permeable Membranes Too Permeable?

Webinar is set for Thursday, June, 17th at 10:00 a.m. PST.

VaproShield, an industry leader in advanced building envelope solutions, is pleased to release Are Highly Permeable Membranes Too Permeable?, an AIA and IIBEC accredited technical seminar. This live presentation investigates the current research on vapor open systems and discusses how more permeability enhances wall assembly performance.

We will examine:

  • Water vapor transmittance
  • Water hold out vs. air tight
  • Drying capacity
  • Vapor barriers vs. vapor open
  • The perfect wall; cladding and rainscreen

Learning Objectives:

  • Define what permeance is and how it is tested
  • Understand wall assembly drying mechanisms
  • Show the benefits of permeable assemblies
  • Illustrate the differences between vapor tight and highly permeable WRB membranes in relation to water intrusion of a wall assembly

Your training will be presented using online meeting software. Instructions for accessing your online course will be sent from your host.
