Concrete Moisture Emission Testing

Extensive damage can occur to flooring as a result of moisture present in, or migrating through concrete slabs. The flooring industry relies on ASTM standard test methods to evaluate the moisture condition of concrete prior to placing their product. Moisture transmitted through concrete is measured under a sealed plastic dome with the Moisture Emission Test Kit. Results are used to establish the rate of emission in ASTM F1869. Concrete Moisture Meters and Construction Moisture Testers instantly display relative moisture levels of concrete surfaces based on ASTM F2659. The Concrete Hygro-I Inspection Kit uses probes embedded below the surface to measure and monitor concrete moisture levels according to ASTM F2170.
