Building Lime, Grout and Mud Testing

icon youtube

This section includes some of the testing equipment required by EN Standards for testing grout for prestressing tendons, repairing grouts and grouts for tiles.

Building Lime is created by adding water to quicklime (a process known as slaking), which is produced by burning limestone, marble, chalk or shell at above 800ºC. Building limes have been used as binders in mortars for thousands of years, nowadays they are used for mortar plasters and renders as they are porous and vapour permeable, preventing mold growth and trapped moisture.

Drilling fluid and cement slurry are commonly used in oil and gas drilling operations. Tests can be performed in the field and/or laboratory to evaluate the properties and characteristics of the fluid such as filtration behaviour, viscosity, density.
