The Calcioum Chloride Test may be known as the dome test to some; the dome test is a way to measure the amount of moisture emitted from the surface of a concrete slab. It takes roughly a period of 60-72 hours to run these tests. For new construction, ASTM requires 3 tests for the first 1000 square feet and one test for each additional 1000 square feet.
