Tests on Reinforcement for Concrete
Tensile, weld shear, reverse bend and form and dimensional testing of steel reinforcing bar is routinely conducted by MTS. Comprehensive test certificates are provided for individual batches of test material. Long Term Quality test certificates in accordance with AS/NZS 4671 are also provided to clients who require routine testing of their products.
The determination of bond strength on reinforcement for concrete in accordance with AS/NZS 4671 Appendix C4 can also be conducted by MTS.
Testing of steel prestressing materials in accordance with AS 4672 for the determination of tensile properties can also be conducted by MTS.
Spliced Couplers can be tested in accordance with ISO 15835.1, ISO 15835.2 and RTA Document No. 9M3835 for the determination of tensile strength, slip properties, low and high cycle fatigue properties.
