Accredited Materials Testing Laboratory

Concrete Research & Testing is AASHTO accredited as both a Concrete Testing Laboratory and an Aggregate Testing Laboratory. CRT is capable of performing most standard ASTM tests involving concrete, aggregate, mortar or cementitious material. Limited testing per AASHTO specification is also available. Our laboratory technicians are certified through the American Concrete Institute (ACI) as Concrete Field Testing Technicians and Concrete Laboratory Testing Technicians. CRT technicians are also certified through the Ohio Ready Mix Concrete Association (ORMCA) as Concrete Technicians.
