Why Simtec?

Types of Asphalt Testing

Simtec Materials Testing can carry out a wide range of asphalt testing services. Whether you need to gather test data for a complete reconstruction or would like to test the ride quality of your new road, we at Simtec are primed and ready to assist. We are UKAS accredited in accordance with a range of BS, BS EN and ASTM specifications.

Our quick and responsive teams of Site Specialists work 24/7 to complete jobs onsite and within our in house laboratories. Sample and testing systems are primarily non-destructive, employing a regime of multiple tests and sampling to give you an accurate and detailed report.
