After attending this course, you will be able to:

  • Define the term “moisture” when related to concrete
  • Explain how “moisture” negatively impacts a concrete substrate that is to be coated
  • Define moisture vapor emission rate
  • Define relative humidity
  • Define dew point and relative humidity
  • Explain and conduct the necessary steps to measure moisture in concrete in accordance with ASTM D4263, F1869, F2170 and F2420
  • Evaluate the ASTM standard test methods results
  • Report and document the ASTM standard test methods results
