September 2015 Rapid RH Newsletter – Predict RH Readings Quickly and Easily
Ever wrestle with this challenge? The ASTM F2170 Standard requires you to measure RH at service conditions…but often you need to estimate RH beforehand. Is there a quick and easy way to do this? Yes, there is. Listen as Jason Spangler shares a new breakthrough tool from Wagner Meters.
Freshly poured concrete typically has a very high pH (12-13) but many adhesive manufacturers require pH levels of 10 or below. Hence, monitoring the concrete pH makes a lot of sense. Learn what to do about it here.
Pure water is pH neutral, but when aggregates and cement are mixed with the water to make concrete, the pH level will change dramatically. Discover how pH is related to relative humidity (RH) and what this means for your flooring installation.
Wagner Meters is proud to share a handy new tool for contractors, flooring installers, and others that can be used to predict the RH of a concrete floor slab at service conditions – even before those service conditions are met. Check it out!
