Concrete compression test to ASTM C39

Compression Testing of Concrete Blocks with Recycled Plastic

This task came to us from a research team evaluating how the strength of concrete changes when mixed with different percentages of recycled plastics. Would concrete filled with recycled plastic be the way of the future? How much would these colorful little bits of plastic change the strength of something as robust as concrete?
