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.

1

Apply the PosiTest AIR Test Solution to the test area

2

Place clear Test Chamber over the test area

3

Initiate the test (depressurize the chamber)

4

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 Desktop Software. Test results include rate of depressurization, pressure differential limit, time duration and user-entered PASS/FAIL conclusion.

F.A.Q.

Do your instruments require any formal training for use? Do you offer ‘demo’ models?

Our instruments are designed for simple operation, feature easy-to-use menus, both full and quick instruction manuals, and helpful videos. In lieu of demonstration models, we provide unlimited technical support via telephone and/or email, and a limited 30-day money back guarantee.

Does the PosiTest AIR include a certificate of calibration?

The PosiTest AIR arrives fully calibrated and ready to measure. A long-form Certificate of Calibration showing traceability to a national standard is included at no additional expense. For organizations with re-certification requirements, the PosiTest AIR may be returned at regular intervals for calibration. DeFelsko recommends that our customers establish their instrument calibration intervals based upon their own experience and work environment. Based on our product knowledge, data and customer feedback, a one year calibration interval from either the date of calibration, date of purchase, or date of receipt is a typical starting point.

Does the PosiTest AIR include fixtures for testing corners or angled surfaces?

The PosiTest AIR includes a dome test chamber. No other test chamber configurations are available from DeFelsko.

Can dish soap be used instead of the included solution?

DeFelsko recommends the use of PosiTest AIR Test Solution only. The Test Solution is specially formulated not to have any adverse effects on waterproofing, roofing, air barrier membranes or the PosiTest AIR unit.

Can the solution included with the PosiTest AIR be used at low temperatures?

The included solution is suitable for use in temperatures ranging from -10° C to 65° C. Low temperature fluid is available as an accessory item and is suitable for use between -20°C and 65°C.

What is the shelf life of the solution included with the PosiTest AIR?

Based upon our observations, the test solution is completely shelf-stable and will not lose efficacy over time.

Accessories
