painting concrete


It would benefit the most if ignorant people would quit promoting the plastic taped to the concrete to determine moisture content of concrete. That procedure tells nothing but whether the dew point temperature of the concrete surface has been reached for that air sample under the plastic. Nothing more nothing less.

painting concrete


i agree,,, its much better to use calcium chloride for texting moisture vapor transmission,,, some decent products are Super-Krete's PeneKrete, Xypex, Tamms/Euclid's Hey-D-K11, eliteCrete, Duraaman [ no $ interest in any ]

thankfully nothing's avail from the apron/vest stores - users must buy from pro supply houses/sources
