Construction Materials Testing

Ryzuk's materials testing laboratory is a specialized component within the company. Comprised of highly trained and skilled technologists and technicians, who in collaboration with the materials engineering division, are dedicated to ensuring construction materials conform to required project design specifications.
Performing a variety of tests both on site and in laboratory the materials testing team monitor factors such as the strength, density, and permeability of various materials, in effort to increase the product longevity and reduce future maintenance or upgrades.
