Cylinder Capping

icon youtube
Vertical cylinder capper for 160x320 mm specimens complete with ball traks for a positive location of the specimen, model 55-C0121/22A

Methods for end surface preparation of cylindrical concrete specimen are divided into three groups: bonded capping systems, unbonded capping systems and mechanical grinding systems. For bonded systems, the capping material must have a compressive strength no lower than the specimen. The use of unbonded systems is not permitted for concrete samples having strength higher than 80 MPa.
