Who produces wedi?
wedi building panel is manufactured in Emsdetten, Germany by wedi GmbH, which has been producing the product since 1982.
Why is the wedi building panel waterproof as opposed to “water resistant” backer boards?
wedi building panel is 100% waterproof because of the material it is manufactured from. For example, the foam used to make a standard white coffee cup is highly compressed expanded Styrofoam. However, compressed foam will allow for liquid to move around the units from which it is made. wedi building panels consist of extruded foam, meaning that the foam is created through a process of infusing a styrene resin with a blowing agent.
It is a single piece of foam containing air pockets. The extruded polystyrene core is different than more commonly compressed expanded Styrofoam. With EPS foam, little balls of foam are tightly compressed together to hinder the passage of liquid through the independent pieces of foam.
This is why a liquid stain can often be found beneath a Styrofoam cup sitting on a cold granite countertop after it has allowed vapour transfer created by hot coffee or tea. This results in a foam matrix that is honeycomb in nature. The extrusion process creates foam that is closed cell. it lacks voids through which water can migrate. It also has zero capillarity and cannot wick water.
