Society Of Architects Since 1953
Participants will learn about many industry problems associated with excessive moisture in concrete as it relates to floor coverings and coatings, construction schedules, concrete warping/curling, and indoor air quality. Participants will be exposed to the science behind moisture transmission & emission, and ASTM testing of internal relative humidity & moisture emission of concrete slabs. Participants will gain an understanding of the difference between traditional(external) drying versus self-desiccation and how a breakthrough in self-desiccation technology can allow concrete to consume all of the concrete mixture water. An explanation of how this product breakthrough can contribute to green construction projects (such as LEED) will also be provided.
