Concrete Internal Relative Humidity (RH) Moisture Testing (ASTM F2170).
Being an industry leader at the forefront of utilizing advanced technologies is not new for FloorSciences. Shortly after the ASTM F2170 test method for determining internal relative humidity of the air void space in concrete slabs using in situ probes became a new standard in the U.S., we recognized it's efficacy and was an early adopter in 2003.
At that time, very few companies had the high-tech instrumentation to conduct concrete moisture testing using this method, and it was primarily only European flooring manufacturers that included it in their U.S. specifications. Now almost all flooring and coatings manufacturers recognize this test method in their specifications. This test determines the internal relative humidity of the air voids or capillaries of the concrete slab, but it is generalized as a concrete moisture test.
