The I.P.E’s effects start to be visible one month after its installation and are manifest after four months.

In normal conditions, the I.P.E can reduce damp in walls by more than 60% after only six months.

Improvements become even more noticeable as time goes by, as the issues of damp in walls disappear.

The drying speed depends on the walls’ thickness, composition and coating. Removing the coating will allow faster natural evaporation.

For your restoration work, breathing materials like lime plaster should be preferred for wall paintings, or non-microporous mineral paintings for repairs without sealer.
