Featuring industry professionals with deep experience in concrete moisture measurement, this webinar provides a comprehensive look at the benefits and failings of various methods of concrete moisture testing used both currently and historically to test concrete for moisture content, including:
- Calcium Chloride (CaCl) Testing
- The Hood Method
- Moisture Meters
- Relative Humidity (RH) Testing and In Situ Probes
With an expert review of the science behind concrete processes and the most accurate ways to test concrete moisture content levels, the webinar, offered through Wagner Meters, provides vital education for architects and engineers looking to build their industry knowledge and staying current with the latest developments in moisture content management.
The amount of moisture in a concrete slab will determine when flooring materials can be installed. Several tests are available to test the moisture content in concrete, but as this program will show, not all are accurate or reliable. This program will review common sources of moisture in concrete floor slabs, why it’s important to test for moisture, describe test methods, and discuss why RH testing is the most accurate test method.
- Describe the full flooring system from the ground up to the finish floor covering.
- List the most common sources of moisture in concrete floors.
- Describe why it is important to test for moisture in concrete floors.
- Identify available methods for testing for moisture.
- Discuss why RH testing is the best method for measuring moisture in concrete floor
