moisture/absorption barrier
Explanation:
perhaps... I've found "Aufbrennsperre" simply translated as "primer for porous surfaces" - as far as I understand, it is it stops moisture from plaster etc being drawn into a porous surface too quickly and thus drying out too quickly.

Perhaps you could simply describe it, ie ...it prevents moisture from being absorbed too quickly. ?
