Mine Materials

Ecamricert is a leading laboratory in the control of all types of mine materials.

ECAMRICERT carries out all the control activities of materials of mining and quarry origin used in production processes.

Complete laboratory for analysis of quarry materials used in vast production fields.

Ecamricert is national testing center on Natural Stones for cutting and Agglomerate, with assistance dedicated to companies and support for verification and durability of products, with testing and specialization also according to extra European standards (eg: ASTM, SASO).

Ecamricert is one of the main centers in northern Italy for the control of natural and recycled aggregates. Accredited for the sampling and the main tests, it performs all the Initial Type and control tests on inertmaterials for concrete and bituminous conglomerates, for mortar, for foundations, for rail ballast and armor boulders.

First laboratory with sector dedicated to the study of mixtures for furnaces, with characterization of raw materials of clayey, silty and sandy origin, refining of mixtures, insertion of secondary raw materials, optimization of cooking temperatures, resolution of defects in the production phase.
