ASTM C307 determines the tensile strength of cured chemical-resistant materials in the form of molded briquettes. These materials include mortars, brick and tile grouts, machinery grouts, and monolithic surfacings.

By means of our tensile testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the testing solution that is right for you. Give one of our application engineers a call today for help with creating the best budget and testing plan according to ASTM C307.

Test Procedure

  1. Measure the test specimen Test the specimen after a conditioning period, usually seven days (sulfur materials may be tested 24 hours after preparation)
  2. Put the specimen in the clips on the test machine
  3. Pull the specimen between 5 to 6.4 mm/min (0.2 to 0.25 in/min) of crosshead movement (speed of movement when the machine is running without a load).
