High-performance Stucco for Housing
This research project, a collaboration between NRC-IRC and CMHC, was conducted in an effort to improve the moisture performance characteristics of stucco cladding by modifying existing stucco design mixes and testing new materials. The experimental work was carried out in two phases. Phase I established the basic moisture-transport properties, water-vapour permeabilities and water-absorption coefficients of four stucco materials currently used in Canada. In phase II, researchers tested four trial high-performance stucco materials having lower water-absorption coefficients but higher water-vapour permeabilities than the base-case stucco materials tested in Phase I.
