ASCC Releases New Guide
November 27, 2006

The American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC), St. Louis, is pleased to announce the release of Guide for Concrete Slabs that Receive Moisture-Sensitive Flooring Materials, published by the American Concrete Institute (ACI), Farmington Hills, Mich. The 42-page Guide gives advice to the design and construction team to help avoid costly problems related to construction delays or flooring failures due to moisture in the concrete.

The ASCC helped fund the writing of the first draft of the book, which was then reviewed and approved by ACI 302 Committee (Floor Construction) and ACI’s Technical Activities Committee.

The book covers concrete moisture basics and testing, PH testing, floor covering manufacturers’ recommendations, drying of concrete, vapor retarders/barriers, floor covering materials, design and construction recommendations, and references.
