How It Works
Detailed instructions are available in our PosiTest AIR Instruction Manual
The portable, hand-operated PosiTest AIR Leak Tester tests the air barrier integrity of single, two-ply and liquid membrane systems, including air barriers, roofing systems, waterproofing and ground liners by locating leaks.
In accordance with ASTM E1186, the PosiTest AIR will indicate whether leaks exist in the test area. It is a simple Pass/Fail test.
Apply the PosiTest AIR Test Solution to the test area
Place the clear Test Chamber over the test area
Initiate the test (depressurize the chamber)
The location of an air leak is indicated by bubbling of the Test Solution. An estimate of the relative size of the leak can be made based on the size and speed with which the bubbles form. The image below demonstrates an air leak is present (FAIL test result)
Upon completion of the test, the maximum pressure differential and duration of the test will flash on the display.
Store Test Result (optional)
The PosiTest AIR's internal memory can store up to 200 test results which can be transferred to a PC using PosiSoft 3.0 Desktop Software. Test results include rate of depressurization, pressure differential limit, time duration and user-entered PASS/FAIL conclusion.
PosiTest AIR Test Solution TESTSLTN16
Every PosiTest AIR comes complete with (4) bottles of Test Solution. Additional bottles are available in cases of (16) 8 oz. bottles.
Each bottle includes application dauber
Operating temperature: 14° to 149° F (-10° to 65° C)
The PosiTest Air Test Solution has been specially formulated not to have any adverse effects on waterproofing, roofing, air barrier membranes or the PosiTest AIR tester. Do not use on spun polyolefin building wrap.
