Natural stone test methods - Determination of water absorption at atmospheric pressure

This European Standard specifies a method for determining the water absorption of natural stone – see
EN 12670 for terminology and EN 12440 for denomination - by immersion in water at atmospheric pressure.

Prüfverfahren für Naturstein - Bestimmung der Wasseraufnahme unter atmosphärischem Druck

Diese Europäische Norm legt ein Prüfverfahren fest, mit dem die Wasseraufnahme von Naturstein - siehe
EN 12670 für die Terminologie und EN 12440 für die Bezeichnung - durch Eintauchen in Wasser bei
atmosphärischem Druck bestimmt werden kann.

Méthodes d'essai pour pierres naturelles - Détermination de l'absorption d'eau à la pression atmosphérique
