Concrete Test Cube for hire from Drogheda Hire suitable for compressive strength of concrete cube test provides an idea about all the characteristics of concrete.
By this single test one judge that whether Concreting has been done properly or not. Concrete compressive strength for general construction varies from 15 MPa (2200 psi) to 30 MPa (4400 psi) and higher in commercial and industrial structures. Compressive strength of concrete depends on many factors such as water-cement ratio, cement strength, quality of concrete material, quality control during production of concrete and so on.
This concrete is poured in the mould and tempered properly so as not to have any voids. After some hours these moulds are removed and test specimens are put in water for curing. The top surface of these concrete should be made even and smooth. This is done by putting cement paste and spreading smoothly on whole area of concrete.
