RE: The big donut
I tried to post a comment but I couldn't... I hit 'submit' and it doesn't do anything... I was going to post:

I still have unanswered questions:

Is there a single flooring or adhesive manufacturer recognizing a slab tested by ASTM D-5084? And is each pour of a slab actually tested or is there one blanket test that covers all slabs poured?

Can a silicate treated slab (topical or integral) be tested using methods recognized by any major flooring or adhesive manufacturer?

I ask because when I test slabs treated integrally my MVER tests are higher than the same slab without the admix. And I cannot perform ASTM F-1869 on a topically treated slab without damaging the installation.

Therefore these treatment systems are unable to be proven in the field, and as far as I know, unaccepted by the flooring and adhesive manufacturers.

That leaves the owner and installer at great risk in the case of a failure.


I wrote to Bill to see if he could get my comment in.... Wink
