  • Tests of drilled cores to determine strength, carbonation and chloride ion content.
  • Bending and tensile strength tests of profile steel, rebars and their welded joints.
  • Ultrasonic tests of welded rebar joints.
  • Tests of concrete products and bricks.
  • Tests of aggregates based on JIS requirements.
