Abstract
An increased interest in moisture buffering in the indoor environment and the development of more refined hygrothermal calculation tools call for a better understanding of the phenomenon. There are many materials indoors with potential to act as moisture buffers, ranging from traditional finishing materials as gypsum plaster to textiles. The objective of this study is to show that the interest in moisture buffering is not a new issue. There have been significant laboratory studies made in the past. This study presents a review of such previous studies (1960-2000) on indoor surface materials from Germany and Sweden, not published in English before.
