MOISTURE TESTING OF CONCRETE TO ASTM F2659 NON-DESTRUCTIVE INSTANT TEST & ASTM F2170 IN-SITU ERH TEST...
For concrete and cementitious screeds to receive a floorcovering the base must be suitably “dry enough” to prevent damage to the flooring material and to ensure a proper bond with adhesives.
Water is a vital component in the manufacture of concrete and the concrete must be kept moist during the critical curing phase to ensure the intended concrete strength.
However excess moisture in the substrate is the most common cause of floor failures, costing billions annually and causing major disruption to home and business owners.
Testing concrete and screeds for moisture is simple using Tramex unique combination system which provides a comprehensive overview and gives the flooring installer piece of mind.
The Tramex moisture and humidity testing system for floor covering related industries has been developed to help users avoid moisture related problems in flooring and to identify the cause of problems if they do occur.
How simple, instant and non-destructive tests will save you time and money on your RH testing and strengthen your reputation.
The FeedBack DataLogger from Tramex is designed with flooring installers and inspectors in mind, helping to make the job of moisture testing concrete much easier by allowing for storage of measurements of in-situ ERH as well as ambient conditions simultaneously. This can be done in a couple of useful ways.
