Building materials

Analytics of construction materials

Fast and precise analysis of elemental composition of construction materials

Precise analysis of the elemental composition is essential in construction material analytics. The quality of materials like concrete, cement or aggregates can only be judged if precisely knowing their composition.

In assessment of building condition, precise knowledge of penetration profiles of harmful substances is essential for rehabilitation planning and computation of remaining building lifetime.

Using LIBS multiple goals can be achieved in industrial quality

Examples of application

  • Penetration profile of harmful chemicals in concrete buildings (chlorides, sulfates, alkali salts)
  • 2D-element mapping of various elements
  • Drilling dust analysis
  • Analysis of bulk goods on conveyors, e.g. in the cement industry

LIBS systems can be used directly on construction sites, too.
