Water from the air – important facts about the causes and consequences of condensation
Condensation is a normal physical process that cannot be avoided. Air always contains a certain amount of moisture, also called relative humidity – in our region, it is approx. 50 to 100% depending on temperature, where warmer air can store more moisture. Condensation results when warm, moisture-laden air comes into contact with cooler surfaces.
Cold air can only hold less moisture, and the excess water falls out as condensation.
However, this also means that the specific temperature of different materials inside buildings invariably causes condensation, depending on the particular ventilation conditions and water content of the ambient air.

KefaTherm shuts down dripping water at the source
The principle for KefaTherm condensation protection coating is ingeniously simple: to keep condensation from doing damage, it needs to be vaporised as quickly as possible. When the surface tension is removed from collecting water, it is more easily vaporised. Surfaces remain reliable free of dripping water and stay dry.
