Standard Method of Test for Sampling and Testing for Chloride Ion in Concrete and Concrete Raw Materials

scope:

This method covers procedures for the determination of the acid-soluble chloride ion content or the water-soluble chloride ion content of aggregates, portland cement, mortar, or concrete.

The total amount of chloride is usually equal to the acid-soluble chloride. However, organic additives or minerals that contain acid-insoluble chloride may be present in concrete and concrete raw materials. These constituents may become acid soluble during long-term exposure to the alkaline environment in concrete or mortar.

The age of concrete mortar or hydrated portland cement at the time of sampling will have an effect on the water-soluble chloride ion content. Therefore, unless early age studies are desired, it is recommended that the material be well cured and at least 28 days of age before sampling.

This standard provides for the determination of chloride ion content by two procedures: Procedure A, Determination of Acid-Soluble Chloride Ion Content and Water-Soluble Chloride Ion Content by Potentiometric Titration or Ion-Selective Electrode (Laboratory Test Method); and Procedure B, Acid-Soluble Chloride Ion by Atomic Absorption (Laboratory Test Method).

Sulfides are known to interfere with the determination of chloride content. Blast-furnace slag aggregates and cements contain sulfide sulfur in concentrations that can cause such interference, which can be eliminated by treatment as noted in the test procedures. Other materials that produce a strong odor of H2S when acid is added to them should be similarly treated.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the preferred standard.
