Moisture testing of concrete substrates has become a common practice in the floor coatings industry. Even though most contractors and field technicians are capable of performing the testing, they don’t really understand what the data they are collecting means, other than the acceptance criteria established by the product manufacturer of the coating or flooring being installed.
The importance of moisture testing of concrete floors cannot be stressed enough. Moisture is a leading cause of coatings failures on concrete floors. There are many ways moisture can affect floor coatings on concrete. Moisture testing alone is not sufficient enough at detecting all of the potential problems. Inspecting a building prior to performing any tests will provide a much clearer picture of the potential problems moisture in both liquid and vapor form can pose.
This is a print-on-demand (POD) book that will be produced just for you in 2-5 days after your order. It should arrive at your door in about one to two weeks. However, due to supply chain and logistic challenges currently affecting the industry, it may take longer. Allow three weeks for international orders.
MUST HAVE CLASSIC: The objective of the NACE Corrosion Engineer's Reference Book, published in 2016, is to provide scientists, engineers, technologists, and students with useful and important information and data on corrosion investigation and control.
This handbook starts out with a comprehensive glossary that includes standard terminology and acronyms related to corrosion. It also contains more than 325 tables, graphs, and charts.

This guide covers and describes the factors that influence laboratory immersion corrosion tests, particularly mass loss tests. These factors include apparatus, sampling, test specimen, test conditions (test solution composition, temperature, gas sparging, fluid motion, solution volume, method of supporting test specimens, duration of test), methods of cleaning test specimens, imterpretation of results, and calulation of corrosion rates. This guide also emplasizes the importance of recording all pertinent data and provides a checklist for reporting test data.
