Field testing for chlorides by both qualitative and quantitative methods is common and the threshold for acceptable levels is dropping, but the cumbersome methods for testing have remained the same – until now!

CHLOR*TEST – the accurate way to perform chloride field testing – revolutionizing the industry

CHLOR*TEST is so complete and easy to use that even the least experienced inspector can get accurate results. Imagine, a field test that is easy to use, yet more reliable than any other method of testing.

CHLOR*TEST was developed for ease of use and to prevent outside and cross contamination. The components are premeasured to ensure accurate results in parts per million and micrograms per square centimeter. In addition, no temperature correction is needed for 41 deg. F to 176 deg. F. Field test inspectors around the world use this innovative product with confidence on virtually any surface at any angle.

The CHLOR*TEST uses a unique patented extract solution, CHLOR*EXTRACT™, to retrieve surface chloride contamination. In the field, this special extract enhances retrieval rates, thereby increasing accuracy. The greater the retrieval rate, the more accurate the test results.

When specifications require consistent, safe and reliable test results for chloride contamination, use CHLOR*TEST. Each kit contains five (5) individual tests. CHLOR*TEST is designed to be used on vertical, horizontal or overhead surfaces.

CHLOR*TEST is another dependable product developed and manufactured by CHLOR*RID International, Inc. Since 1992, CHLOR*RID International, Inc. has earned the reputation of a world leader in soluble salt testing and removal while satisfying the most aggressive requirements in the protective coatings industry.

CHLOR*TEST is so revolutionary, an inspector will never need:

  • Deionized water
  • Latex gloves
  • A Calculator
  • Measuring devices
  • Working containers
  • Conversion charts
  • Reagent chemicals


Step 1

Empty the entire contents of the CHLOR*EXTRACT™ container into the CHLOR*SLEEVE™. Peel off the protective backing, pinch the sleeve to expel some of the air and adhere the sleeve to the surface to be tested.

Step 2

Massage the extract against the surface; then peel the sleeve off the surface and place it in the perforated hole in the box lid.

Step 3

Snap the sealed ends off the glass tube, insert it into the sleeve and down into the extract. In about two minutes read the color change to identify the chloride level in both parts per million and micro grams per centimeter squared, the ratio is 1:1.
