C375-02N Carbonation test set

( Concrete )

  • EN 13295

The test allows the measurement of the depth of carbonation through the surface of concrete.
The set consists of:

  • phenolphthalein solution (1000 ml)
  • demineralized water (5000 ml)
  • depth measuring gauge
  • two washing bottles 250 ml capacity

The surface of the concrete specimen under test is sprayed with phenolphthalein solution to detect the loss of alkalinity associated with carbonation.
The risk of carbonation induced corrosion can be measured, if correlated with the concrete cover to reinforcement.
Weight: 6 kg
