Will AeroTherm rectify damp walls?
No. If walls are suffering from a damp problem then the cause must be identified and rectified before applying Aero-Therm. If AeroTherm is applied to a damp substrate, there is a risk that too much moisture will build up behind the AeroTherm and cause it to lose adhesion.
We recommend that walls must have less than 60% moisture and have a temperature of over 10OC before applying AeroTherm. Room humidity should also be less than 65%. We can recommend tools to enable you to measure this.
