Diamond Coring

Diamond Coring

Retrospective coring to retrieve test samples or retro-fitting of posts and fences is a common requirement in civil engineering. Simtec offer an excellent service using state of the art hydraulic drilling equipment fitted with quality diamond tipped core barrels of differing diameters. Reinstatement is carried out to the highest standard.

We also offer ancillary laboratory testing for concrete cores at our Leicestershire base.

Our UKAS accreditation is limited to those activities described on our UKAS schedule of accreditation found here.

Frequently Asked Questions

The size of sample depends on the material and the reason for the testing. Simtec Materials Testing can offer advice once we know the nature of the tests required. The more information you can supply, for example, client, site name, date sampled, material type, specification etc the more accurately we can advise you. A purchase order is normally required at this stage.
