  • The moulds are used for preparing the specimens for the purpose of determining the length changes (shrinkage/expansion) in hardened hydraulic cement mortar and concrete.
  • According to all standardized test methods for determining the length changes of hardened cement paste, mortar under different conditions, the moulds are used together with the any UTEST Length Comparators (UTCM-0200 or UTCM-0210) fit the specimens’ sizes.
  • Minimum surface hardness of UTCM-0029E is HV400 which is recommended by the EN standard.
  • All moulds surfaces are protected with anti-corrosion oil.
  • Also, all parts of the moulds are matchmarked.
  • The moulds are supplied complied with the steel inserts screwed on.
  • Reference rod and other equipment be should ordered separately.
  • For the purpose of determining the length changes (shrinkage/expansion) in hardened concrete including aggregate which has larger sized Dmax, UTC-1153, UTC-1155 or UTC-1161 moulds are also used together with UTC-1170 Large type digital length comparator.
