Sulphate Content Testing - Constructive Evaluation Ltd

Sulphate Content Testing. Sulphate attack is a chemical break down where sulphate ion attacks components of cement paste. Sodium Sulphate attacks calcium hydroxide and forms gypsum that becomes more than double the volume. Sulphate content testing performed in a laboratory can be used to assess sulphate content

METHOD OF TEST FOR SOUNDNESS OF AGGREGATES

2018-10-16  1.1 This method covers the testing of aggregates to determine their resistance to disintegration in saturated solutions of magnesium sulphate. It furnishes information helpful in judging the sound-ness of aggregates subject to weathering action, particularly when adequate information is not available from service records.
