Concrete Drying Supervision IoT Use Case

May 7, 2021

Before applying a protective coating or other flooring material to a concrete slab, it is critical to ensure a decrease in the moisture level inside the concrete.

If not, moisture can accumulate below the coating or flooring causing discoloration, cupping, buckling, blistering, adhesive failure, and/or mold growth.

The relative humidity inside concrete is the deciding factor when coating or flooring can start. Since concrete drying time is a major determinant in the schedule for most construction projects, shortening that time can potentially save you a lot of money.

Identiv’s NFC-enabled uTrust Sense Passive Temperature and Humidity smart sensing tag makes concrete drying supervision, easier, more cost-effective, and since its batteryless operation creates no e-waste, it is an eco-friendly solution.
