Determination of readiness for laying based on material moisture, corresponding relative humidity, and water release

  • The moisture content of the subfloor has to be determined before installation to avoid damages of the floor covering. Only if the readiness for layering is reached, an installation without damages can be expected in all cases. In general, three different approaches exist to measure the residual water content: determination of the moisture content, determination of the water release, or determination of the corresponding relative humidity. All three approaches are tested in laboratory at eight different screed types including two different samples thicknesses in each case. The moisture content and the water release are measured by sample weighing, the corresponding relative humidity is measured by embedded sensors. All three approaches are compared and correlated to each other. The evaluations show only weak correlation and, in several cases, contradicting results. Samples are considered as being ready for layering and not-being ready for layering at the same time, depending on theThe moisture content of the subfloor has to be determined before installation to avoid damages of the floor covering.

Samples are considered as being ready for layering and not-being ready for layering at the same time, depending on the chosen approach. Due to these contradicting results, a general threshold for the risk of damage cannot be derived based on these measurements. Furthermore, the experiment demonstrates that the measurement of corresponding relative humidity is independent of the considered screed type or screed composition. This makes the humidity measurement to very promising approach for the installation of material moisture monitoring systems in the future.zeige mehrzeige weniger
