Versaperm Vapour Permeability measurement

Lime: Render, Paint & Permeability
Reducing costs for buildings

    Lime: Render, Paint & Permeability


Using lime as render, plaster or paint may be ancient technique but it has the very modern properties of offering both breathability and durability. The keys to its use are airtightness and breathability and Versaperm has introduced a dual-purpose machine to measure both of them.  These measurements relate to permeability but in different ways and need to comply with separate building regulations and guidelines. 

Between them they represent the key to controlling a building’s internal environment and long-term structural stability.  Versaperm’s system gives precise measurements at a lower-cost than conventional testing.

In buildings, permeability manages the flow of air and water vapour which, in turn controls everything from ground remediation and damp courses, through to the internal environment.  It affects both the viability of a building’s structure and the health of people who live or work inside. 

The equipment can be used for renders, plasters, paints and even complete structures, barriers coatings and general building products.  It is fast, extremely accurate, easy to use and reliable.

Failure to manage the vapour flow into and out of buildings is linked to multiple problems from structural collapse through to sick-building syndrome, dust mites, asthma and allergies.

Versaperm is a world-technology leader in this area and offers the equipment as well as a fast turn-around building products testing service and a consultancy.
