Moisture Vapour Emission Rates
TDS 1166: LATICRETE and Moisture Vapour Emission Rate, Relative Humidity and Moisture Testing of Concrete

Materials used in tile and stone installation applications can be affected by moisture during the installation and curing phases. Some materials, such as waterproofing membranes, may not cure properly or may delaminate from a continually wet substrate, or a substrate with a high moisture vapour emission rate (MVER). A substrate which is damp or has a high MVER may also contribute to the formation of efflorescence. Concrete with a high moisture vapour emission rate may also have an impact on a tile or stone installation.

There are generally three quantative tests that are used to determine moisture content in concrete..

Cairns is the most northern regional commercial centre on the Australian eastern seaboard and hosts nearly 2 million tourists a year who are drawn to the tropical climate and the Great Barrier Reef. Artists Philomena Yeatman, Edna Ambrym and Valmai Pollard from the nearby Indigenous community of Yarrabah were selected by the Cairns Council to produce artworks for a $700,000 public art mosaic project to be featured on eight walls around landscaped gardens in the main mall in Cairns. The Orchid Group (also known as Symmetry Mosaics) were appointed as the installing contractors, and Artistic Solutions Group were selected as creative consultants to ensure artistic integrity was maintained as the canvas paintings were translated into mosaics and adapted to the vast expanse of the eight walls.
