Selected Answers

From paarthiban balasubramaniyan of National Basics Company on June 12, 2021:
New concrete must have a moisture content of 4% or less before the coating application commence. Test for retained moisture in concrete as per plastic sheet method ASTM D4263 or by moisture meter or by calcium chloride dome test in ASTM F1869
