Materials Testing

3rd Rock manufactures test specimens for several of the tests below so that the “raw” products can be submitted to our laboratory. In our inventory we have tensile split- molds for Types I, II, III and IV specimens and many other shapes and sizes to accomodate various projects. For example, we have manufactured several different types of elastomeric concrete product specimens for testing at our facility to determine whether “cured” materials meet state DOT requirements.
