*These settings were derived from sample populations of the different flooring products provided by the above manufacturers. These samples were lab-tested for actual moisture content at Wagner Meters using the ASTM D4442-92 oven-dry method. The oven-dry results were then used to establish the optimum settings for Wagner Meters digital handheld moisture meters.

ASTM D4442-92 is the laboratory standard method used to verify the level of accuracy of handheld moisture meters for wood.

Decimal point is not shown on the meter display. Example: when setting your meter for .59, the actual value on the meter display will be 59.
