Originální abstrakt

Spray foam thermal insulations are one of new materials, which are now considerably applied in building practice and which are therefore also the aim of current research. In building practice is an effort to apply these materials to very rugged surfaces in both the external and the internal side of the structure. On the interior side, however, the application is connected with the risk of condensation, which is difficult to verify by the measurement. The contribution is focused just on the comparison of methods and measuring devices designed for immediate detection of moisture in the material of sprayed polyurethane foam. The samples of thermal insulation, which have undergone exposing of humidity in accordance with Czech Standards, were compared by the experimental assessment. The obtained results were compared and evaluated, while as expected, the moisture measuring of highly porous thermal insulation is significantly more difficult than the measuring of thermal insulations made of conventional homogeneous building materials.
