Hi Chug & Tjibbe --
There was a permeability study done in Canada from which a report was
written that appeared in Issue #33 of The Last Straw Journal
(www.thelaststraw.org) "Testing Plaster Permeability," pg 25.
Also the test summary was posted online at the time (2001):
www.cmhc-schl.gc.ca/Research I bet it is still there.
