HAC Testing
High Alumina Cement Concrete (HACC) has been banned for a number of years due to conversion resulting in a significant reduction in strength. It is imperative to determine if HAC beams are present in a building in order that precautions can be taken to protect the members from adverse conditions likely to compromise the strength further resulting in potential failure.
The test to determine the presence of HAC in concrete is relatively cheap and simple to undertake.
