The fastest test available.

The instrument designed to accelerate traditional laboratory cement strength tests.

BS EN 196-1 standard strength test accuracy in minutes with less effort.

Determine cement strength in minutes!

Our revolutionary CemTest instrument using a conductivity-metrical method defines the strength of cement instantaneously prior setting.

Cement manufacturers and users have historically experienced long delays in confirming the strength of their cement and concrete mix. Traditional methods have required samples to undergo a 28 day hardening process prior testing for strength. The aim of the project was to develop an instrument, which by employing conductivity-metrical aspects of water-cement mixture, would give an immediate reading showing the compressive and flexural strength of the sample.
