This test method covers the determination of the electrical resistivity of water-saturated concrete to provide a rapid indication of its resistance to the penetration of chloride ions. This test method is applicable to types of concrete where correlations have been established between this test procedure and long-term chloride diffusion procedures such as those described in ASTM C1556.
WJE laboratories are accredited by AASHTO (R18) to perform testing standard AASHTO T358 for Standard Method of Test for Surface Resistivity Indication of Concrete's Ability to Resist Chloride Ion Penetration.
