||For the realization of civil engineering structures, the engineer during the design stage must base his calculations according to the soil properties where the structure will have to integrate.
This section studies and analyses a soil sample to evaluate and to know its characteristics, by proposing a complete range of testing equipment for: sampling, preparation, classification, consolidation, shear strength, triaxial, compaction, penetration, bearing capacity, permeability, density, geotechnical and chemical tests, in compliance with the EN, ASTM, BS and the most known International Standards.Special voltages and Hz versions are available upon request (i.e. 115 V–60 Hz, 230 V-60 Hz, 115 V-50 Hz, three phase feeding 230 V-60 Hz)
||Cement is an inorganic material largely 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…).
Browse this section and discover the complete range of Matest products for tests on cement and mortar.
Special voltages and Hz versions are available upon request (i.e. 115 V–60 Hz, 230 V-60 Hz, 115 V-50 Hz, three phase feeding 230 V-60 Hz)
|| Asphalt, also called bituminous conglomerate, is a fundamental material of road construction field. It is mainly composed by aggregates and binder with an infinite variation of mixtures.
The binder of the asphalt is called bitumen.Due to the very intensive traffic conditions, asphalt is constantly under stress. Road pavements can face different kind of stress: compression, flexural as well as tangential stress. For this reason, asphalts have to grant excellent performances.Matest wide range of products in this section allows to conduct a lot of tests on bitumen and asphalt.Special voltages and Hz versions are available upon request (i.e. 115 V–60 Hz, 230 V-60 Hz, 115 V-50 Hz, three phase feeding 230 V-60 Hz)
||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.
The workability, the consistency, the setting time and the air content are only a 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.Special voltages and Hz versions are available upon request (i.e. 115 V–60 Hz, 230 V-60 Hz, 115 V-50 Hz, three phase feeding 230 V-60 Hz)
