One of the most effective methods used to evaluate concrete quality, diagnose causes of deterioration, and determine extent of damage is petrographic examination. It is applicable to aggregates, concrete, mortar, grout, plaster, stucco, terrazzo, and similar portland cement mixtures.
Petrographic methods combine unaided visual inspection and examination using stereo, petrographic and metallographic microscopes. CTLGroup’s expert interpretation of findings helps us develop practical
