Moisture and pH Test Kit

These calcium chloride moisture test kits are used to obtain a quantitative value that indicates the rate of moisture vapor emission from a concrete slab to determine if the slab is acceptable to receive the finished floor covering. Also, included are pH test papers and distilled water used to measure the surface alkalinity of the concrete slab to determine if it meets the recommendations of the flooring or adhesive manufacturer. Inexpensive and easy to use, these kits are widely recommended by floor covering product manufacturers and conform to the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM International) Standard ASTM F 1869-04 for testing of moisture. Detailed instructions, results sheet and a tack cloth used to remove dust prior to installing the clear dome dish cover are included with each kit.

Note: Three test kits are required for the first 1,000 ft.² and one test kit for each additional 1,000 ft.² or fraction thereof.
