Physical Analysis of Cementitious and Cement Replacement Materials
UK Analytical have over 25 years experience of carrying out determinations on the physical characteristics of cementitious materials and cement replacement materials; particularly the use of pulverised fuel ash (PFA) and ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBFS) as cement replacement materials.
Most of the testing is carried out to the methods in BS 1881:124:1988 which is a revision of BS 1881:6:1971.
