Abstract [en]

A test procedure for measurement of alkalinity for cementitious materials that is, reliable, simple. and only needs a small amount of sample, was developed and applied to check whether transport of alkaline material from a concrete surface to a covering screed can result in a detectable increase in pH-value. It was found that any transport of alkaline material from a rather humid concrete did not increase the level of alkalinity (or pH-value) of the screed covered with a carpet. It was noted that carbonation Occurred gradually from the surface and inwards when the materials were exposed to ambient air. For the prisms, of 95%, RH pH-value in the concrete surface increased with time. A transport process that allows hydroxide ions solved in the pore water in the concrete to diffuse towards the carbonated surface and thus give an increased pH-value, can explain this.
