SERVICE OFFERING

01


Slump Test

Determines the uniformity and consistency of freshly mixed concrete to ensure it is fit-for-use.

02


Making & Curing of Test Specimens

Preparing concrete specimens from freshly mixed concrete to determine compressive strength.

03


Compressive Strength of Hardened Concrete

A concrete cube press is utilised to determine the compressive strength of a sample taken from freshly mixed concrete.

04


Compressive Strength of Cores

A method of drilling cores from hardened concrete and preparing them for testing to determine their compressive strengths.

05


Flexural Strength of Hardened Concrete

The use of a concrete beam press to determine the flexural strength of concrete.

06


Durability Testing

A common test to determine the oxygen permeability, water absorptivity and chloride conductivity of a hardened concrete specimen.

07


GPR Concrete Scanning

Get real-time interpretations of concrete structures such as bridges, walls and silos, revealing rebar layouts, voids and other integrity issues.

08


Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity and Echo

Scanning of sub-surface targets in concrete to determine strength and quality, evaluating slab thickness and the severity of honey combing.

09


Concrete Crack Width Meter

A test to investigate crack width on a variety of concrete structures using photographic recording.

10


Cover Meter Testing

Determining the reinforcing depth in an existing concrete structure with the use of a rebar detector.

11


Rebound Hammer

This device measures the elastic properties or strength of concrete or rock, mainly surface hardness and penetration resistance.

12


Burnt Clay Masonry Units

A series of tests for product acceptance, including but not limited to dimensions, compressive strength, efflorescence and water absorptions.

13


Carbonation Testing

By extracting a core sample and treating it with a phenolphthalein solution we can determine the exact carbonation depth on a structure.

14


Cement Paving Units

A series of tests for product acceptance: shape, appearance, color, dimensions, tensile splitting, abrasion resistance and water absorption.
