Calcium Chloride Test Kits
Sorry, the Vapor Test Kits are CURRENTLY ON BACKORDER. Please check back on May 1st, 2020.
Calcium Chloride Test Kits measure the amount of moisture emitted from concrete floors. 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:
- Orange plastic dome
- Pre-weighed calcium chloride test dish
- Alkalinity pH test kit
- Testing Procedure with the calculation formula
- Vapor transmission calculator is also available online
The small test dish with anhydrous calcium chloride is placed on the concrete floor and covered by a plastic dome. These kits use the strongest adhesive in the industry to ensure a tight seal for the dome, which is key to precise measurement. After 60-72 hours, the test dish is cut out.
The moisture vapor emission rate (MVER) is calculated from the weight gain of the calcium chloride 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 or their warranty becomes void.
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.
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.
