Xtratec laboratory technicians can perform physical and mechanical testing on a range of natural and recycled aggregates. Tests undertaken include particle size distribution, classification, resistance to fragmentation by the Los Angeles method, and testing for water content.

Advanced Soil Icon

Soil Testing

Xtratec offer reliable soil testing that meets national standards. The tests assess the quality and suitability of the soil, measuring moisture content, liquid/plastic limit, Moisture Condition Value (MCV), particle density, and the Saturation Moisture Content of chalk (SMC).

  • Understand how materials behave whilst in use
  • Know the material’s failure point
  • Inform your future decision-making
  • Bring to light any problems with a sample or mix
  • Save time and costs by getting it right first time
  • Keep your projects within budget and on time
