CondenStop Moisture & Corrosion Protection Single skin metal roofs are prone to condensation due to changing outdoor or indoor conditions. Condensation, sweating and dripping can have severe adverse effects on the condition of the building and its valuable contents. A structural and economical solution to solve moisture management problems in single skin systems is CondenStop®. CondenStop will prevent dripping and sweating of single sheet systems and provide additional protection against corrosion. It will give building owners an economical and effective integrated solution against the harmful effects of moisture. Manufacturers of single skin systems and components can add extra value and differentiate themselves by offering customers CondenStop enhanced panels. CondenStop anti-condensation fleece is applied onto the majority of single skin roof panels across Europe. You will find CondenStop enhanced sheets in many types of buildings including, storage buildings, hangars, RV shelters, portable buildings, barns, activity centres, arenas, carports, manufacturing facilities, and warehouses. CondenStop is the leading solution for the prevention of dripping of condensation in non-insulated buildings. CondenStop is a registered trademark of Lantor BV. No representation or warranty is provided as to accuracy or completeness 1 of the information in this document. CondenStop has been tested extensively, and certified by leading institutes for moisture absorption, sound absorption, chemical resistance, mold, and aging. CondenStop is fully certified on its fire characteristics by Underwriter’s Laboratories Inc. (ASTM E84-04, FSI 0, SDI 35). In classification terms: Class A according to NFPA 101 and, Class I according to the Model Building Codes. CondenStop has been developed by Lantor. Lantor is recognized world-wide for its innovative nonwoven products and applications since 1958. Lantor is a fully ISO9001 and ISO14001 certified company. As the market leader, Lantor’s CondenStop delivers a proven and certified quality solution for condensation problems in single skin systems. Absorption and Time-to-Drip-Formation CondenStop is a synthetic nonwoven fleece based on polyester fibers containing a chemical binding agent mixed with unique Thermoplastic Microspheres. Together these components create the critical characteristics for the effective prevention of sweating and dripping due to condensation. CondenStop has excellent absorption properties. These absorption characteristics will prevent dripping from the roof or ceiling. CondenStop has been tested extensively and successfully in Europe by leading institutes and the largest metal companies. The Institute of Building Physics in Germany determined a very high absorption capacity for CondenStop. The absorption capacity for the basic material is over 3 oz per sqft.

Even more important is CondenStop’s impressive Saturation Performance. The unique combination of fibers and microspheres results in an unparalleled Time-to-Drip- Formation. Just a few hours till drip formation is not sufficient, building owners and users need a drip-free and sweat-free building 24/7. The unique structure of CondenStop also provides the basis for its internal ventilation performance. Breathing or ventilation enables the effective and fast evaporation of condensation. Corrosion Protection Using CondenStop will not modify or harm any existing protection against corrosion. Due to the high quality adhesive layer, moisture will not get into contact with the metal sheet. In fact, the adhesive layer will act as a highly effective moisture barrier. Efficient Application on Metal Sheets CondenStop can be applied inline prior to rollforming during panel production. It is applied on sheet metal with a pre-applied adhesive (protected by an easy-release foil). The overview below illustrates this efficient process. Even during on-site rollforming CondenStop is easy to use. CondenStop is a registered trademark of Lantor BV.

Fire Resistance CondenStop has been certified by Underwriters Laboratory according to ASTM E84-04. In classification terms: Class A according to NFPA 101 and, Class I according to the Model Building Codes. In addition, the full classification according to NEN-EN-ISO 11925-2:2002 for CondenStop is B-s1, d0, the highest classification possible. Noise Absorption CondenStop has significant anti-noise characteristics. CondenStop absorbs noise from outside weather conditions, and reduces interior noise. Several leading institutes have successfully tested CondenStop for noise- and sound absorption. Anti Mold CondenStop does not support the growth of molds. CondenStop has been qualified as a class I material, which means that it is “impervious to mold growth”. Multiple Cold Surfaces Although roofs and ceilings are the obvious areas for the use of CondenStop enhanced panels, other cold surfaces, such as, framing members and cooling ducts will benefit from CondenStop too. Concealed Condensation Besides the potential visible condensation locations, CondenStop can be used where concealed condensation may occur. One successful application is the prevention of moisture collection in the insulation between panels (R-value protection). CondenStop is a registered trademark of Lantor BV.
