AbstractThis paper postulates a new test for the evaluation of EIFS integrity as a more reliable approach to predict field performance. This test involves pre-conditioning of the system under simultaneous exposure to a water vapour gradient and a temperature gradient, followed by exposure to severe conditions of one-sided, uni-directional climatic cycling.
