The new standard in concrete strength measurement

• Maturity and/or conductivity
• Fully automatic
• Data via internet and SMS

New about this system is that it makes use of two methods to determine the strength of curing concrete (1 – 28 days): the maturity method and the conductivity method. Data are sent to a website so they can be accessed, reviewed, printed, and shared anywhere, any time.

Behaviour of building materials
Knowledge of the behaviour of materials when in use and of the relationship between the structure of materials and their properties. This involves knowledge and expertise with regard to relevant test methods for determining these properties.

Research and development
The ability to draw up requirements which building products and components will have to satisfy in terms of their function, to advise on how to satisfy these requirements and determine the extent to which this has been done. All of this depends on the material chosen and systems/conditions.

Risk assessment
Controlling methods for assuring the quality of processes, materials, products, staff and services. This involves establishing the basis of the assessment and determining and testing relevant aspects by carrying out measurements and inspections.
