Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. This practice covers the procedure for determining the acceptability of concrete floors for the installation of resilient flooring.
ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. All concrete slabs should be tested for moisture regardless of age or grade level while all concrete floors should be tested for pH before installing resilient flooring.
Concrete floors for resilient floorings should be permanently dry, clean, smooth, structurally sound, and free of substances that may prevent adhesive bonding. It also includes suggestions for ensuring that the constructed concrete floor is acceptable for such installations but does not cover tests for adequacy of the concrete floor to perform structural requirements.
It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. The surface of the floor should be cleaned by scraping, brushing, vacuuming, or any other method.
