The word concrete comes from the Latin word “concretus” that means compact or condensed; in fact it is well known that since the second century the Romans mixed quicklime with pozzolan to enhance its hydraulic properties and then mixed it with aggregates in order to obtain a robust stone-like material for the construction of roads and structures. Since then the quality and the production technology of concrete strongly evolved hence considerable care supported by knowledge is required to produce quality concrete. Geotechnical testing equipment, since several years manufacturer leader of testing equipment, proposes a complete range of testing equipment to satisfy practically all the EN and other National Standards.
The need to assess the quality and integrity of new buildings and the preservation of historical buildings and monuments, has produced and encouraged modern techniques along with related equipment for non destructive testing, known as NDT. Controls proposes a vast selection of NDT instruments and apparatus with precise indications concerning the product use and the relative applications
