ASTM C1202

Full Name

ASTM C1202 – Standard Test Method for Electrical Indication of Concrete’s Ability to Resist Chloride Ion Penetration


This test method covers the determination of the electrical conductance of 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 longterm chloride ponding procedures such as those described in AASHTO T259.
