Chemistry and Cementitious Testing Laboratory
SGS TEC Services performs both physical and chemical testing of cements, pozzolans and other cementitious material to various standards.
Testing is crucial in determining the characteristics of these materials so that one may predict its general performance and the effect it will have on the concrete. Our team brings experience with both routine and specialized testing.
We perform a variety of tests with different materials in accordance with ASTM, AASHTO and US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) test methods and specifications. We help provide regular monlthly analysis of cementitious samples as an independent 3rd party solution for our clients and help to strengthen their business relationships in both product quality and assurance.
Our chemistry lab has experience with:
- OES (Metals)
- Laser Particle Size Analysis
