I imagine most people see concrete slabs and don’t give them any thought. On the surface, no pun intended, they seem relatively straight forward. Concrete is mixed and poured and a day later it is hard and you put a house on top of it. Anyone who deals with concrete understands there is a lot more going on. As the title would allude to, this post will cover different testing procedures to ensure concrete is sufficiently cured before installation of a flooring system. This is done to reduce the failure of the flooring system (i.e. delamination, blistering, peeling, staining or sweating).
Tramex Moisture Meter
Today I am reviewing the CMEXpert II Concrete Moisture Meter from Tramex. The CMEXpert II’s primary operation is to detect and evaluate the moisture conditions within slab or screed via non-destructive means by using electrical impedance.
