Understanding Vapor Diffusion

Ever more stringent energy code requirements have necessitated increased insulation levels for non- combustible (i.e. steel stud, CMU, concrete) walls, and in many cases this includes adding exterior insulation. Additional insulation thickness and changes to the insulation location require reconsideration with regards to vapor diffusion and condensation control.

The Origins and Properties of Stone Wool

Stone wool (or mineral wool) was discovered on the islands of Hawaii at the beginning of the century. It occurs there naturally as a byproduct of volcanic activity. In its manufactured state, stone wool combines the power of rock with the characteristics of typical insulation wool.

The greatest potential for energy and CO2 efficiency gains lie in our existing buildings. Buildings are responsible for some 40% of our energy consumption and major CO2 emissions. Most of this energy is needlessly wasted.
