    Abstract

    EIFS Resistance to water penetration has traditionally been measured in accordance with ASTM Standard Test Method for Resistance to Water Penetration of Windows, Curtain Walls, and Doors by Uniform Static Air Pressure Difference (E 331). EIMA modeled its standard test method for resistance to water penetration on E 331 with several modifications. This paper discusses the EIMA test method and results.
