Precision Cast Aluminum Unit Weight Measures are preferred to determine the unit weight, yield, and gravimetric air content of fresh concrete or void content of aggregates to ensure high-quality pavements and structures.
Measures meet ASTM C29, ASTM C138, and AASHTO T19, AASHTO T121 specifications, and are machined for superior accuracy. Integral handles are formed into the corrosion-resistant aluminum castings. Measures are water-tight with top and bottom true and even. Rugged construction prevents deformation under rough usage.
