A barrier that prevents liquids/fluid/wetness from getting on the other side of it. It is suggested that people use MOISTURE BARRIERS to help prevent the passing of germs that cause STDs, including HIV, from one person to another during oral sex on a woman's vulva or vagina or on any person's anus. Some examples would be plastic wrap (household), a dental dam or a non-lubricated condom.
A layer of foil, plastic or paper used in the construction of exterior walls, ceilings and foundations to prevent moisture penetration into wooden members or insulation.
Yarns that have either a non-wicking or a water swellable finish to help prevent moisture from entering the yarn bundle, which could cause signal interference.
Treated paper or metal that prevents water or water vapor from coming in contact with the protected material.
an important feature because it helps keep the old wall dry
A material, usually latex, used during sexual activity to prevent fluids or blood from passing between partners.
Treated paper or foil used to keep moisture from moving from one area to another. Paper or foil is on the back of roll-type insulation and foil is on insulation board.
is treated paper or metal that prevents water vapor from passing into walls or floors.
The use of treated paper, metal or plastic to retard or prevent moisture from seeping into walls and floors.
PAPER OR METAL TREATED TO RETARD OR BAR THE PASSAGE OF WATER VAPOR THEREBY KEEPING SAID VAPOR FROM PASSING INTO WALLS, FLOORS, OR CEILINGS.
a special building paper fastened over the sheathing on the inside face of the cavity. It is lapped and taped to provide a third level of protection against moisture penetration. moisture content Term which in engineering indicates the percentage moisture content (which equals the weight of moisture divided by the weight of dry material multiplied by 100). The moisture content of a concrete aggregate, soil or mineral sample consists of two portions, namely, the free or surface moisture which can be removed by exposure to air, and the inherent moisture which is entrapped in the the material, and is removed by heating at a specific temperature (in the case of most coal for example, this temperature is 200 degrees F or 93.3 degrees C). Moisture content syn: inherent moisture; water content.
A membrane used to prevent the migration of liquid water through a floor or wall.
Treated paper or metal that retards or bars water vapor, used to keep moisture from passing into walls or floors.
Insulating materials usd to prevent the build up of moisture (condensation) in walls and other parts of a building.
