Thanks to Matest equipment it is possible to test all the physical and chemical characteristics of mortars, cements, slurries and limes.
Air content: porosimeters to determine the amount of air present in the fresh mixture according to ASTM or EN regulations
Lime yield: stainless steel extinguishing vessel with cavity insulated with rock wool
Workability and consistency of mixtures: motorized or manual shafts according to ASTM and EN standards
Stability of cement and lime: chatelier molds and tanks and steam baths to determine the expansion of the sample immersed in cold or boiling water
