QUALITY & ACCREDITATIONS

ISO 9001: Qualified Manufacturer

Since 2005 Matest quality management system is certified according to ISO 9001 Standard for the “Design, manufacture and sale of machines, equipment and measuring instruments for building materials testing and inspection”.
Matest has continuously monitored the new developments of this Standard and in July 2011 has updated its system in accordance with the new requirements specified by ISO 9001:2008.

LAT No. 214: Matest Calibration Centre
Matest is recognized as an official ACCREDIA metrological centre LAT No. 214 for the calibration of compression testing machines in accordance to UNI EN 12390/4, UNI EN ISO 7500/1 and BS 1610/1.

Concrete

Concrete is one of the most used materials in the construction industry. Several variables contribute to define the quality of the concrete utilized for a structure: workability, consistency, setting time and air content are only few examples.

Matest proposes a wide range of testing equipment and high stiffness compression machines (manual, semi automatic or automatic) which allow to test concrete cubes, cylinders and blocks and satisfy the EN and other International Standards. Each machine has its own kN capacity and control unit to perform tests on materials with different strength and composition.

Cement-Mortar

Cement is an inorganic material used in the construction industry, both on site and during the production of semi-manufactured products.

By mixing with water, the cement becomes a paste with adhesive properties: for this reason, it is considered an hydraulic binder and properly defined as hydraulic cement. This paste is generally used as a binder with solid inert materials such as sand, gravel and small rocks to produce the mortar and to prepare different types of concrete (light, reinforced, pre-stressed concrete).

Bitumen

Bituminous mixture, also known as asphalt mixture, is mainly composed by aggregates and bitumen, an infinite variety of mixtures being possible.

This section lists the equipment required for bitumen testing, including machines to study the rheological properties of bitumen as well as the features of bituminous emulsion. It includes solutions to perform field tests on road surface.

Asphalt

The asphalt testing machines provide a solution for the whole “asphaltic path”: mixing, compacting, modelling and testing. The equipment meets the needs of those who want to perform quality control or experimentation of new asphalt mixtures.

Pavetest’s range of pavement dynamic testing systems both complements and completes Matest’s Asphalt and Bitumen business unit. All our products comply with the main international standards.
