AbstractThe 1990 National Building Code (NBC) stated that the air barrier could be a separate component located anywhere in the wall. This change raised the possibility that someone using a low-permeance material as an air barrier might choose to place it close to the outer surface of the wall where condensation could form on its interior face.
