MMS- Are some unreliable with high RH?

#8
To give you an idea:
ASTM E96 Bostic Moisture Seal's Perm Rating is: 0.12 g/24 hrs/M²mmHg @ 32° C and 50% RH
source: http://bostik.com.au/construction-trade-products-catalogue-sheet-28565-moisture_seal-m-0-g-0.html

ASTM E96 - Koster VAP perm Rating is: 0.024 grams h-1 m-2
source: http://www.kosterusa.com/files/us_en/6.035-VAP-2000.pdf

And as a benchmark:
ASTM E 1745 - Stego wrap has perm: 0.0084 (but I can't find metric #'s for it)

**Section 7 of ASTM E 1745 specifies the testing conditions and allows for either of the following test methods: ASTM F1249 or ASTM E96.
