Neoprene pads (couple) 70 shore a for dia. 100×200 mm cylinders
Used for compression tests on concrete cylinder specimens, as an alternative method to the sulphur capping and grinding machine.
Two steel capping retainers are applied on the two flat surfaces of the cylinder.
Two neoprene pads are put between them, for a better load distribution.
The neoprene pads are available in two models:
– 60 shore hardness pads for expected strength from 10 to 48 MPa
– 70 shore hardness pads for expected strength over 48 MPa
The system is not applicable for expected strength lower than 10 Mpa
Neoprene pads (couple) 70 shore A for dia. 100x200mm cylinders.
The capping retainers can be used only with compression testers
having increased vertical clearance of the testing chamber, respectively
to minimum 356 mm for the cylinders dia. 150x300mm or 6x
12″; and minimum 376 mm for the cylinders dia. 160×320 mm.
