Concrete that has been distressed from chemically induced deterioration should be properly prepared to achieve a sound substrate prior to the application of protective linings for severe service environments. Concrete surface pH testing is one quality- control method of assessing the appropriate removal of chemical ingress. This article explores a more appropriate testing procedure for vertical concrete that has been developed....
