Water vapour diffusion resistance factor (Sd) is a diffusional equivalent of the air layer thickness that creates a barrier for the water vapour diffusion.

Sd is given in meters. The bigger Sd is the bigger diffusional resistance is and vice versa. Sd 40 m means that particular material creates a barrier for the diffusion of the water vapour comparable to the 40m thick air layer. Sd is a non relative value, not dependable from temperature, pressure, or humidity. Sd is given in meters. The bigger Sd is the bigger diffusional resistance is and vice versa.

ATENTTION:

  • Metr [m] is the Sd unit.
  • Sd is an absolute value.
