Construction Material Testing

We undertake analysis of a wide range of raw materials and finished products to a variety of national, European and international standards.

Thanks to our industry knowledge and the close work that we do with many regulatory bodies, we can guide you through the maze of current regulations and guidelines to ensure that your products receive certification quickly and cost-effectively.

We offer a full range of physical (durability, strength, weatherability, load, slip resistance) and chemical (composition, microstructural) tests. To complement testing results, our experts offer interpretation together with impartial, independent and practical advice.
