MTL is qualified and equipped to perform the list of tests on Portland cement detailed below:
Why use Cement testing from MTL?
As cement is the heart of concrete, tests must be performed to determine the characteristics of the cement and its compatibility with other materials in the concrete mix design.
MTL has facilities to conduct complete physical, mechanical and chemical testing of cement and aggregates.
Compressive strength testing of mortar cubes (at 3 days, 7 days and 28 days of aging) is used to observe the mortar's strength gain over time.
MTL is qualified and equipped to perform various tests on Portland cement, including compressive strength, chemical analysis, time of setting, blane finess and flexural strength of hydraulic cement, determination of proportion of phases in Portland cement and clinker using XRD, and particle size analysis of cement using laser diffraction.
