Cement is one of the most critical materials used in construction. The strength of a structure depends on several factors; cement quality is one of them.

BS EN offers a comprehensive test for cementitious materials to check the conformity according to EN197-1. These materials include traditional Portland cement and other cementitious materials such as Fly Ash, Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBS), Limestone Fines & Silica Fumes.

A comprehensive range of cement testing encompassing both physical and chemical properties:

  • Strength
  • Setting time Soundness Fineness
  • Activity index Moisture content
  • Loss of ignition Residual insoluble Sulfate
  • Sulphite
  • Chloride
  • Manganese
  • Major elements (SiO , Fe O , CaO, MgO, Al O )
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Alkali (Na O & K O) 22
  • Reactive silica heat of hydration Pozzolanicity
  • Specific surface area – BET method
