Laboratory Testing

Our lab provides testing services and forensic examination for construction materials 

We truly are experts – we perform materials testing that few laboratories are accredited for or proficient in. Our accredited laboratory works closely with ASTM and other regulatory agencies in the development of test methods, testing guidelines, and specifications. Our employees are active members in ACI, ASTM, ICRI, FRCA, ASCE and SWRI and several are current or past committee members, committee chairs, board members, and presidents of local and national chapters.

Our state-of-the-art laboratory leverages industry-leading technologies to deploy advanced testing for our Consulting and Field Inspection Services and our clientele. We work with building owners, contractors, law firms, concrete producers, material manufacturers, engineering firms, government agencies, facility owners, and suppliers.

Petrographic Laboratory Petrographic Laboratory

SGS TEC Services provides petrographic analysis of aggregate, concrete and cementitious-based products and materials to aid in failure analysis investigations and quality control testing of building materials. This analytical tool can determine the following concrete, mortar and other cementitious products characteristics:

  • Estimation of water-cement ratio
  • Cause of surface defects
  • General quality and condition
  • Depth of carbonation
  • Identification and volumetric estimation of pozzolanic materials
  • Identification of deleterious materials and reactions
  • Alkali-silica reactivity
  • Chemical and physical sulfate attack
  • Degree of carbonation and other environmental effects
  • Segregation of Materials
  • Aggregate quality
  • Maximum aggregate size and gradation
  • Entrapped and entrained air contents
