Drip stop is a different way of dealing with the condensation on uninsulated metal roofs in a simpler, more economical way.
When the temperature and humidity conditions reach the dew point, moisture condenses on the underside of the uninsulated metal roof. If there is a lot of condensation, drops of water form and start to fall causing damage to the contents below. The traditional method for dealing with condensation is to try and insulate the roof so that the temperature on the panel never reaches the dew point.
The drip stop solution
The roof panel with drip stop anti-condensation felt provides a medium for trapping this moisture in the specially designed pockets formed in the membrane. Drip stop holds that moisture until conditions go back below the dew point and it is released back into the air in the form of normal humidity.
Drip stop anti-condensation felt is a self-adhesive and is applied to the metal panel in the roll forming process. We can apply drip stop to corrugated, box profile and tile effect sheeting. As a result drip stop arrives at the building already in place and set to be installed with the roofing panels immediately. The membrane is resistant to aging, and also provides an additional layer of protection for your metal roof.
Drip stop can be used in virtually any structure where condensation is a problem.
