The Science of Moisture-Related Failures and How to Avoid Them


The presentation will examine the reasons why moisture found in concrete substrates can cause catastrophic failures. We will discuss the chemical and physical processes that cause moisture problems. We’ll look at the wide variety of methods for testing. We’ll also explore how to select the best products to block moisture in a variety of application scenarios.

By the end of this presentation, participants will learn:

  • How to look for potential moisture problems in concrete slabs.
