The service provides support for research in the field of building materials.
– Physico-chemical characterization of building materials (FTIR, ATR, FTIR-EGA, isothermal calorimetry, etc.).
– Determination of rheological properties of pastes and mortars
– Determination of physico-mechanical properties of pastes, mortars and concretes
– Determination of adsorption curves of admixtures in cement slurries.
– Durability of mortars and concretes
The service has two laboratories; one for analytical instruments and another one for physico-mechanical and durability tests.
