Concrete and Cores
The concrete testing laboratory is fully equipped to carry out a comprehensive range of testing to assess critical properties of both freshly mixed and hardened concrete.
Our concrete trial mixing area and temperature and humidity controlled testing and curing rooms enable us to perform trial mixes at controlled temperatures together with the ability to simulate winter and summer conditions for casting, curing, setting and placing properties.
Our core testing area is equipped to assess cause and extent of deterioration of concrete structures through carbonation, chloride content and chloride profile testing.
Lab and Field can arrange the securing of cores in association with a leading South Australian coring company and perform both on-site and off-site sample preparation for testing.
