What do you mean by "my walls will breathe better" ?

Tradical® products naturally permit the diffusion of air and moisture thus controlling the humidity level within them. This breathability and humidity control delivers improvements in the internal environment that can benefit health by combating mould and bacterial growth within the walls.

The health benefits for occupants of buildings with breathable walls can include a reduction in allergies and respiratory illnesses because of the natural humidity control provided by the construction materials.

The diffusion of moisture also helps to deliver long-term durability benefits by avoiding dampness.

Where moisture is trapped within a construction this will lead to accelerated deterioration mechanisms affecting the life time performance of the materials and increasing maintenance expenditure.
