Building Materials Testing

Through Stanger Testing Services Limited a wide range of services are available to the construction industry, including standard cement tests, the assessment of aggregates and cladding stone, the valuation of admixtures and the determination of the mechanical properties of most building materials. Our extensive laboratory facilities also provide for chemical analysis, metallurgy, petrography and optical microscopy to compliment the standard tests for the identification of the constituents of materials used in construction.

As an accredited test house we offer unbiased assessments for quality assurance, compliance with standards and specifications, new product development, defect investigations and evaluation of structures. In-house expertise in interpreting the significance of the test data obtained enables us to prepare and present reports expressing opinion.
