Remarks The European standard describes a procedure for determination of water absorption coefficient under partial immersion without temperature gradient for a short period of time. It serves to assess the intensity of water absorption due to capillary force at persistent watering or driving rain, also in the unusual case during an unprotected storage of insulation and construction materials at the building site or during the construction phase. This procedure is suitable for the testing of plasters or coatings in conjunction that are listed in the corresponding international standard.
