Along with our selected partners, AMCRETE UK can conduct Non-Destructive Testing (NDT). Typical NDT, using the Silver Schmidt provides indications of in-situ concrete compressive strength and homogeneity, particularly useful when there is suspicion of low strength development for fresh and new concrete. Assessment of service life of structures is an increasing demand and as such, AMCRETE UK provides assistance with determining and measuring cover of reinforcement, measuring corrosion potential along with resistivity and permeability.
The purpose of NDT is to inspect an element in a safe, reliable, and cost-effective manner without causing damage to the concrete itself. This is in contrast to destructive testing where the part being tested is damaged or destroyed during the inspection process.
