Testing Facility

   
 

Aamal Readymix laboratory is fully equipped and staffed to conduct a range of routine tests in line with the company’s internationally-approved standard testing programme as well as providing extended range testing. Lab undertakes statistical analysis of local test results, issue monthly reports for the management information.

Other responsibilities include the calibration of testing and measuring equipment, qualification and selection of raw material sources, updating of technical libraries, and the technical training and education as and when required.

Our laboratory also specializes in the development of new products for special applications, and the evaluation of newly-introduced materials.


In order to comply with the requirements of certain specifying authorities, and to provide a comparative assessment of the Company’s own testing accuracy, Aamal Readymix employs the services of independent test agencies on a regular basis. Their findings and test results are made available to customers and consultants on request.
