This European Standard specifies a method for testing adhesion and perceptible changes in the coating during reverse side water action. The test covers situations such as:

- coating of old but water saturated, surface dry concrete;
- coated concrete with moisture from behind (without additional hydrostatic pressure), causing an alkaline attack to the coating.
