Mortar Testing to AS 3700-2011
United Scanning Services uses MortarCheck ll on-site to predict the durability of masonry mortar and verify compliance with the standard to provide confidence in mortar quality for the lifetime of a building. This is done by a calibrated mechanical scratch test simulating accelerated physical forces on masonry mortar that leads to degradation.
MortarCheck II meets the requirements of AS 3700-2011 Masonry structures and is also an effective tool for evaluating the relative hardness of renders, plasters, and other building materials.
With the test being mechanical, the result is obtained immediately on site. No need to wait for laboratory results.
