The following data are from tests performed on Generation 2 BamCore panels. The Generation 3 Panels are undergoing testing. We expect them to perform similarly or better than Generation 2 when testing is complete. Please check back for updates.
Water Vapor Permeance
BamCore’s bamboo-based hollow Prime Wall System delivers a water vapor transmission rate that matches the range of rates found in commonly used house wraps. Recent independent tests documented that the bamboo-based panel component of BamCore’s Prime Wall System offers a Water Vapor Transmission or permanence rate that is eight times…
