Experiences of moisture damage

The activities in damage investigations have resulted in a chronological ”collection” of identified causes of moisture damages and moisture problems in floor structures and foundations. The “collection” includes impermeable floor coverings, expanded clay particles in a capillary breaking layer, outdoor ventilated crawl spaces, CCA-impregnated wood, heat insulation as a moisture barrier, water-based adhesive for wood-particle floor boards, self-levelling compounds with casein, PVC plasticizers, alkali-silica reactive aggregate, lost formwork, self-desiccating concrete, wooden floor tiles and parquet, floor heating, etc.

These experiences are mostly ”Swedish”. More details are given under ”SVENSKA”.
