Calcium Chloride Test Kits measure the amount of moisture (MVER) emitted from concrete slabs. Each kit also includes a pH test kit to measure the alkalinity of concrete as required by ASTM and flooring manufacturers.
These affordable and complete moisture test kits include:
- Anhydrous calcium chloride test dish
- Orange plastic dome
- Alkalinity pH test kit
- Testing Instructions with calculation formula
- MVER calculator is also available online
Place the small test dish with anhydrous calcium chloride on the concrete floor and cover it by a plastic dome. These domes use the strongest adhesive in the industry to ensure a tight seal to the concrete, which is essential for precise measurement. After 60-72 hours, cut out the test dish and weigh it on a high-precision scale (sold separately).
Calculate the moisture vapor emission rate (MVER) from the weight gain of the test dish at the end of the test. Most flooring manufacturers set the maximum MVER in the range of 3 to 5 lbs/1,000 sq. ft. in 24 hours.
These Calcium Chloride Test Kits follow the latest ASTM F1869-11 “Standard Test Method for Measuring of Concrete Subfloor Using Anhydrous Calcium Chloride.” The Alkalinity Test meets and conforms to ASTM F710-11.
How many kits do you need? For new construction, ASTM mandates 3 vapor emission test kits for the first 1,000 sq. ft. and at least 1 kit for each additional 1,000 sq. ft.
A high-tech digital gram scale is sold separately.
Packaging … single kits, 3-packs, 12-packs, and 100-packs.
