This simple test allows the measurement of depth of carbonation through the surface of concrete. During the test, the broken or cored surface is sprayed with phenolphthalein solution to detect the loss of alkalinity associated with carbonation.
Test set is conforming to EN 13295 for measurement of the depth of carbonation and including:
- 1 plastic wash bottle
- 1 depth gauge
- 1 liter of phenolphthalein solution
- Weight approx.: 2 kg
