ISO 12571:2013


ISO 12571:2013 specifies two alternative methods for determining hygroscopic sorption properties of porous building materials and products:

a) using desiccators and weighing cups (desiccator method);

b) using a climatic chamber (climatic chamber method).

The desiccator method is the reference method.

ISO 12571:2013 does not specify the method for sampling.

The methods specified in ISO 12571:2013 can be used to determine the moisture content of a sample in equilibrium with air at a specific temperature and humidity.
