Plastic Moulds for Concrete Test Cylinders

Print this entry Recent trials have established the benefits of heavy duty plastic moulds for concrete test cylinders. The heavy duty plastic moulds have insulating properties that minimise the effect of heating or cooling of the sample, due to high or low ambient temperatures. This results in more consistent and higher strength readings on one-to-ten day samples and .. read more

Advances in Measurement of strength of materials using a portable hardness tester

Print this entryHylec’s Portable Hardness Tester. For over a century hardness testing Instruments have been used to measure the strength of metallic materials and hardness of their surface finish. The original machines were bench mounted and measured strength by applying a given force to a probe and making an indentation which causes plastic deformation. The .. read more
