moisture resistancyCellulose fibre has the unique ability to slowly absorb and dissipate excess moisture thereby reducing the risk of potential condensation problems. 

Canadian homes and buildings can experience loss of warm moist air from interior environment to the colder exterior air by several means such as ripped, unsealed or discontinuous vapour barrier, or by piping or electrical wiring and boxes penetrating the vapour barrier. 

During the heating season, these disruptions to the vapour barrier permit escaping warm air to condense within the insulation layer or on the cold roof or wall sheathing. To combat this occurrence, insulation should be used which exhibit an ability to absorb and slowly dissipate that moisture.

Cellulose fibre’s ability to transport moisture to a surface where it can evaporate is most important in keeping moisture levels low and insulation effectiveness high.
