Specifications for athletic floor sealers and finishes, together with an approved products list, are maintained by what association?


True or false: A coating system on an exterior concrete block wall must provide protection from wind-driven rain and, if moisture vapor diffuses from inside to outside, be sufficiently permeable to allow vapor to exit the wall.

Which of the following organizations provides information about good practice in the selection and use of sealants in expansion joints?


True or false: Clear, non-film forming masonry sealers, such as silanes and siloxanes, have little effect on vapor permeability, thereby allowing water vapor to exit the masonry substrate.
