NATURALLY MOISTURE REGULATING
Moisture transport in the construction component works by diffusion, i.e. from warm to cold. Condensation occurs when the air temperature reaches the dew point.
Cellulose has a capillary conductivity, which means it absorbs any moisture that forms and thus acts against the direction of diffusion. As a result, cellulose becomes a valuable moisture buffer, especially if a drying out of the construction component is only possible on the room-side - such as, for example, in the case of unventilated flat roofs, interior insulation or renovation.
Isocell cellulose insulation does not accumulate mould itself and also protects adjacent parts.

20 °C Warm air with absolute humidity of 9.4 grams per cubic metre corresponds to a relative humidity of 54%. If one cools this air to 10 °C, the relative humidity rises to 100%. Condensate precipitates on further cooling. This is called the dew point.
