CDF/CIF Freeze Thaw Tester

The CDF-/CIF test set-up enables the freeze-thaw test to be carried out in accordance with CDF recommendations from RILEM. With this test procedure, the weathered quantity of a surface is measured by a number of freeze-thaw cycles. The test specimens are thereby placed in a solution of sodium chloride to stress the surface. The result gives an estimate for the resistance to freeze-thaw cycling for the concrete being tested.
