Product Description

The calcium chloride vapor emission test was developed over 40 years ago to quantify the volume of water vapor radiating from a concrete slab surface over time. This test is directly specified by the vast majority of the Floor Covering Industry as the primary measure of moisture acceptability for floor covering installation.

Description

This test requires the use of a gram-weight scale with a gradation of 1/10th (0.1) gram. The calcium chloride container is weighed before and after exposure to the concrete slab. It is highly recommended that the test be weighed prior to, and directly after exposure on the same scale. This is a very sensitive and highly accurate test when conducted properly. Differences between two scales and extended time between weighing can offset the test result.

DO NOT conduct this test unless the building environment is representative of the actual working climate. While the test can measure moisture in a wide range of building climates, the results are only meaningful when conducted in a similar building environment as the finished floor system. Obtaining meaningful results is only possible when tests are conducted in a representative interior climate.
