CondenStop is used to effectively prevent problems caused by condensation in metal buildings and roof systems. CondenStop can replace blankets and retarders or protect insulation in open metal roof systems.
The CondenStop fleece prevents dripping and keeps building contents and insulation dry. CondenStop was first introduced 15 years ago and is the clear market and technology leader. Leading metal suppliers, panel manufactures and contractors use CondenStop to prevent a real metal roofing issue and to generate extra business and profits.
CondenStop adds moisture storage capacity to metal roofs
The CondenStop fleece absorbs, stores and re-releases significant quantities of condensed moisture when condensation occurs.
No matter what measure is taken, moisture will always find its way to the metal roof and into the roof system where is can cause condensation. CondenStop will help manage that problem and prevent the adverse effects of visible and concealed condensation.
When the temperature of a metal roof drops below the dew point, the CondenStop fleece will absorb and store the condensing water vapour. The absorbed water will evaporate again to the ambient air under appropriate temperature and ventilation conditions.
CondenStop enhanced panels can be used in new and retrofit projects. Components like ridge caps, interior gutters and other parts that are prone to cause condensation problems can be covered with CondenStop too. Application onto panels and components can be done by the manufacturer or contractor
CondenStop is a layered synthetic nonwoven fleece with unique Thermoplastic Microspheres. The very large internal surface (up to 60 SF per SF of fleece) and the distribution of large and small pores create the critical characteristics for the effective prevention of sweating and dripping of metal roofs.
The unique combination of fibers and microspheres results in an unparalleled Time-to-Drip. Just a few hours till drip formation is not sufficient, building owners and users need a drip-free and sweat-free building 24/7.
