With setting up the independently operating laboratory in 2000, NV VABI has further increased the level of quality control. In the laboratory, the various products of NV VABI and NV SUBEMA are checked a daily basis. Raw materials, such as sand, gravel and cement, are also examined for quality and composition in the laboratory. The design of new concrete recipes and the research and development of new products as well as monitoring developments in the concrete sector are also among the tasks of the laboratory staff. The European EN-NEN standards and the American ASTM standards are used for the various research and test methods.
The laboratory is essential to be able to guarantee: “VABI, Meer dan steen alleen!”
