Title: The performance of fibre cement slates: effects of condensation

Ref Code: IP19/01
Authors: P L Walton and P Baker

Abstract1: Changes in construction methods and materials, such as breathable membranes and high performance thermal insulation, introduce new issues for the integrity of buildings. One of these is cyclic condensation in the batten void of roofs and possible adverse effects on fibre cement slates. This Information Paper decribes tests to determine whether fibre cement slates deform or lose strength following two months of cyclic condensation.
