Here we have some Test to find the Good Quality of Cement at site

1: date of Paking

4: Temperature Test

5: Strength Test

6: Lump Test

7: Color of Cement


1: Date of Packing :

When we use any type of cement for construction works so first of all we have to check the manufacturing date of cement , Because the cement should be used before 90 days from the date of packing .
