Los Angeles abrasion machine model 48-D0500/G

Properties of a mix design vary according to the proportion of each component within the mix. Aggregates must be durable, clean, hard, resistant, free of chemicals and clearly suitable for mixing mechanical properties. Discover our specialized lab equipment designed to perform abrasion, impact, friction and crushing tests, using automated technologies such as automatic counters setting total number of revolutions or test duration.
