Condensation Control Condensation is one of the biggest challenges facing the building industry today. Excess moisture can not only have a detrimental effect on the structure of a building but it is also a root cause of mould which can have an adverse affect on the welfare of its inhabitants. Natuwool is a hygroscopic fibre and is therefore able to absorb, store and release moisture faster than most other materials. Natuwool can absorb over 35% of its own weight in moisture without significant changes to thermal performance, whereas the thermal performance of man-made mineral fibre insulation deteriorates when condensation is present. Sheeps wool insulation is ideally suited to timber frame structures as it has a natural synergy with wood. The sheep wool fibres draw out the moisture, conditioning the wood and act as a buffer to protect the fabric of the building. Independent research clearly illustrates that as moisture levels increase no significant changes to thermal conductivity will occur. This consistency demonstrates the versatility of sheeps wool insulation and an ability to cope in contrasting environments and levels of humidity. Landfill is not a Sustainable Option Sheeps wool is biodegradable and therefore can be composted into the ground to enrich the soil and remain part of the earths natural cycle. Sheeps wool insulation can be recycled or incinerated to produce additional energy, whereas man-made mineral fibre materials currently have no practical recycling system in place and can only be properly disposed of into landfill sites.
