Construction Materials

WAL is here for your needs in analyzing a variety of construction materials.  We test material properties to your project’s specifications.  Most analysis is performed in-house to save you time and money.

Elemental Analysis (XRF)

Typical analyses include X-ray spectrometry to provide elemental analysis of mineral/geochemical materials.  Major and minor elements are reported as oxides.

Ash, aggregate D4326
Cement C114
Limestone C25
Gypsum C471

ASTM Methods

Additionally, we perform dozens of ASTM Methods to provide you with the analysis to complete your projects.
