RH Testing Thick Slabs

#23
THICK SLAB UPDATE:

Called back 2 weeks ago to get new readings. Guess what? Bingo!!! They're still in the mid to upper 90s. At this point, the manufacturer (or someone) had approved the use of a well known epoxy-based mitigation, and I assume they will be moving ahead with prep and application...wrong!

So they have the installer place 3 Cal. Clhor. kits in a 8,000+ sf area and they get levels of 2-3 lbs. Don't know if they even bothered grinding this black, slick, hard, power trowled surface.

Now they're going to shot blast the surface and wait. Hope they plan on being there awhile because that slab is never going to dry. But why take my word for it?Huh

But this is what kind of amazed me...the GC said that the Wagner RH tended to provide "conservative readings", meaning (to me), that they were purposely calibrated to provide high readings. I responded that doing so would not only be unethical on Wagner's part, but would make thousands of tests invalid by ASTM standards. The subject stopped there.

People never cease to amaze me.
