Our Capabilites

Not only do we follow ASTM, AASHTO and CSA Standards, we also help to develop and refine these documents. Our work helps to customize test methods as part of RILEM TC 258 focusing on alkali-silica reactivity of concrete. We influence documents in ACI as part of committees 201, 231 and 236.

A few of our specialties lie in durability testing including a full range of alkali-silica reactivity evaluation, freeze-thaw evaluation, volumetric stability, hydration mechanisms and reaction kinetics as wel as sulfate attack.

Specific Capabilities include:

  • Pore solution extraction and elemental analysis
  • X-ray fluorescence
  • Scanning electron microscopy
    • sample preparation
    • sample analysis
  • Isothermal calorimetry
  • Thermogravimetric analysis
  • X-ray Diffraction
  • Particle size analysis
