ASTM C1074-Compliant Concrete Test Lab NovoLab


It’s all about accuracy when it comes to calculating concrete strength and maturity curves. Leveraging our rigorous concrete testing process, we can handle any mix design at any temperature to calculate strength within 1% accuracy.

Easiest way to utilize the maturity method
All the heavy lifting on our side. None on yours. We do the testing and the calculations.

Most rigorous concrete testing lab
No need to re-calibrate when your concrete cures at a different temperatures in the field. We test for any temperature in the field with your mix design.

Extremely scientific approach to concrete curing
We love material characterization so much so that we do more testing than is required by ASTM C1074 standard. This allows us to handle any mix design at any temperature.

Enables 1% accuracy in real-time strength
We use the maturity method equivalent age testing for the highest accuracy for your actual mix design - you will know how much faster or slower it will cure in the field.

Why do we test?

We came from the construction industry. We have experienced first hand what happens in the field is never predictable.

Testing is the only way you can create the most accurate maturity method. How the testing is done leads to the accuracy in the strength. Simply guessing without actually testing the mix design curing temperature sensitivity is not accurate for field situations, due to the wide range of field temperatures and mix design variations.

Concrete cures faster when it’s hot and slower when it’s cold, but HOW fast and HOW slow is the question we answer by testing your mix design. We test using ASTM C1074 standard using equivalent age. We can handle any mix design at any temperature range.

HIGHLIGHTShow we test your mix design

1.

Mix components (aggregates, admixtures) are sent to our lab.


2.

Cubes are put into 4 water baths at different temperatures.


3.

Cylinders are put in one constant temperature water bath.


4.

The break data is captured for each cube and cylinder at various intervals.


5.

Your mix design results are loaded into our NovoSyte software.
