The method strictly respects the European Standard EN 480-11:2006 E. On prepared concrete samples (painted, polished with filled pores), the amount of air in the micropores is measured using the traversing method. This is a measure of the frost resistance of concrete. Our system is fully automated which speeds up the traverse measurement significantly.

  • Histogram of pore size distribution

  • Total traverse length

  • Total air content

  • Total number of traverses measured

  • Specific air content

  • Spacing factor
