Tramex Meters Installation Quick Check for Concrete Moisture

INSTALL Alliance Partner Tramex Meters Installation Quick Check for Concrete Moisture

Avoid dew-point moisture related floor failures at the time of installation with this quick concrete moisture test method from Tramex, developed for professionals in the concrete and floor covering related industries.

  • Even when pre-installation relative humidity and concrete moisture content testing has been successfully performed, ambient conditions can change at the time of installation.
  • This can cause condensation on the concrete floor and bring the concrete back up above the specified “dry enough” threshold.
  • If this condensation goes undetected it can affect your flooring or coatings, causing floor failure.
  • In fact, it is believed that this is actually the cause of the vast majority of floor failures.
  • Concrete moisture testing is only valid at time of testing, which is why a concrete moisture test should be conducted immediately before and during the flooring installation.
  • By implementing this fast and easy Installation Quick Check, you can identify condensation at dew-point and prevent failures before they happen.

Schönox Need for Speed™ and Hands on Training Met the Porsche® Track Experience

Schonox Need for Speed and Hands on Training Met at the Porsche Track Experience

Customers and colleagues attending a recent Schönox Hands ÖN Training session at the company’s Florence Support Center split their week between learning the speed and performance characteristics of both Schönox and Porsche®. Both experiences were hands ÖN. At the end of the week, all agreed you can make a lot of money with one, a lot of memories with the other, and both are really, really fast.

“The Porsche Track Experience was one of the best times of my life,” commented Les Lippert, President, Lippert Flooring and Tile. “It was a great opportunity to meet more of the Schönox and Küberit team and see their facilities.”

Hosted by Schönox, Küberit USA, Trissl Sports Cars, and TMT America, the weeklong event’s pace was set from the beginning with guests picked up at the airport in a series of Porsche Macans and Cayennes. Schönox Hands ÖN training followed, introducing attendees to Need for Speed™ products and strategies. Küberit USA staff shared the company’s rapidly-growing line of floor and wall profiles, providing solutions for all projects and floor coverings. The training later moved from the Schönox Support Center to Barber Motorsports Park, home of the US Driving School of Porsche.

“It was a fantastic event, showcasing outstanding technologies in the hands of so many leaders in the flooring industry,” said Mike Penney, Senior Vice President Sales, Schönox HPS.

The Schönox Florence Support Center hosts flooring contractors, installers, distributors, and specifiers on a weekly basis, providing comprehensive training covering the uses, benefits, installation details, and project strategies of the entire Schönox subfloor series.

Trissl Sports Cars, a division of TMT America as is Schönox HPS North America, hosts several events at Barber Motorsports Park and at the Trissl Sports Car facility each year. The Porsche Track Experience is designed to put drivers in Porsches on a world-class track, learning quickly, while safely testing their limits. “There’s little doubt that I want a Porsche now, but what made me happiest was the opportunity to have these experiences with my father (Dan Ulfig),” remarked Garrett Ulfig, Southwest Director, Master Craft Floors.
