Aggregates’ properties are transmitted to the compounds they will eventually become part of. Our range of testing equipment allows you to analyze the thermal, physical, mechanical, chemical and humidity characteristics required by international standards so that you can predict the future behavior of the bituminous mixtures, concrete and mortar made with the aggregates tested.
