NCMA Solutions Center: Can I use a RILEM tube to evaluate water repellent characteristics of CMU?

From NCMA eNews
July 23, 2020

No. It is not recommended to use a RILEM tube to evaluate the water repellent characteristics of CMU, primarily due to the small surface area evaluated during a RILEM tube test. See NCMA FAQ 25-15 for more information. For details on recommended tests for evaluating CMU for water repellency, see NCMA TEK 19-07.
