Air tightness tests on components used to join different or similar materials of the building envelope: NH18-1/395-1991E-PDF

“This project's goal is to verify the behavior of several connection techniques used between various air barrier elements, where the same connections are exposed simultaneously to extended pressure and temperature differentials reflecting those that may exist in the extreme conditions met in Canada. The study deals with the 24 specimens listed in Table A. These specimens have been exposed to a pressure differential of 150 Pa during a continuous 5 month period (or until a system being studied lost its air tightness), whereas the test temperature is maintained at -20°C, 20°C or 65°C, depending on the nature of the elements of the system and on the position of the air barrier in the wall"--Summary of the study, p. 5.
