The Rio Maior laboratory performs several tests on soils, aggregates, concrete, bituminous mixtures and in situ tests in compliance with the testing standards in force in Portugal. It also possesses the skills and resources to carry out performance tests on bituminous mixtures, such as the wheel-tracking test.
The measuring and monitoring equipment is subject to metrological control, and activities are internally and externally audited, within the scope of factory quality and production control certification.
Laboratory tests can be performed upon consultation. Please check the documentation for detailed information on the tests performed by this Tecnovia S.A. laboratory.
