Dripstop is one of the most famous products of the FILC company and is a different way of dealing with the condensation on uninsolated 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 roof panel with DRIPSTOP anti-condensation membrane provides a medium for trapping this moisture in the specially designed pockets formed in the membrane. DRIPSTOP 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.
