Back5.5.1.2.(3)

Functional Statement:

F63

To limit moisture condensation.

Objective:

OH1.1, OH1.2

 

APPLICATION:

Coatings applied to materials, other than gypsum wallboard, to provide resistance to vapour diffusion through building assemblies, and through interfaces between assemblies described in Sentence 5.1.2.1.(1) that are installed in buildings to which Part 5 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.2.(1) of Division A for application of Part 5].
This also applies to the position of low air and vapour permeance materials within the building assembly relative to the position of materials providing thermal resistance in the assemblies of buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A for application of Part 9], where the building assembly:
  • incorporates low permeance materials that act as other than cladding or that are installed on the warm side of the assembly, and
  • is more susceptible to condensation [see Sentences 9.25.1.2.(4) et (5) for combinations of interior and exterior environmental conditions that create a higher risk for condensation].
This also applies to the design of vapour barriers in buildings to which Part 9 applies [see Sentence 1.3.3.3.(1) of Division A for application of Part 9], where the building assembly is more susceptible to condensation [see Sentences 9.25.4.2.(2) and (3) for combinations of interior and exterior environmental conditions that create a higher risk for condensation].

INTENT:

To limit the probability that the performance of the coating, with respect to resistance to vapour diffusion, will fall significantly below expectations, which could lead to insufficient control of vapour diffusion through environmental separators under expected environmental loads, which could lead to condensation.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • the generation of pollutants from biological growth or from materials that become unstable on wetting, or
  • deterioration, which could lead to compromised integrity of environmental separators.
This is to limit the probability of:
  • negative effects on the air quality of indoor spaces, and
  • the inadequate thermal comfort of persons.
This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.

This is to limit the probability of deterioration, which could lead to compromised structural integrity of the separators or of elements supported or protected by the separators, which could lead to structural failure, which could lead to harm to persons.
