Concrete department

Basic informations

The central Laboratory of the Concrete Department of the IGMAT Institute is located at the headquarters of the company. There is a smaller lab at the Maribor regional unit. Apart from lab testing of fresh and hardened concrete, an internal and external control of different cement based materials and planning of different concrete mixtures is performed.

We perform production capacity control of concrete producing plants, construction steel testing and different concrete product and semi-product testing. We have been intensively introducing new testing of fresh and hardened cement based materials and the development and application of new concrete technologies. Our clients are offered consultancy in concrete technology, expertise and analyses.

Within the concrete department, sewerage system leakproofness testing is performed; special attention is paid to detailed checks of more demanding construction engineering facilities and rehabilitation projects whereby different nondestructive testing of installed concrete and fitting is used. Research-development projects are implemented and training in concrete technology is done.
