Laboratory Testing

Gulf Laboratories have extensive laboratory testing facilities located in the Salwa Industrial Area. Our physical testing laboratories are located at St.13 and our chemical, environmental, petroleum and food testing facilities are located at St.2.

In addition to testing at our permanent facilities, we also establish, staff and operate site laboratories as well as carry out in-situ testing and sampling.

We employee over 250 qualified laboratory technicians, chemists, microbiologists and other technical staff, who are supported by an extensive quality control and quality assurance department.

Our quality and HSE management systems have been certified to ISO 9001, OSHAS 18001 and ISO 14001 and we also have around 500 tests accredited to ISO17025. We are also an Ashghal approved laboratory.

CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS

We have extensive capabilities at out St.13 facility for the testing of a wide range of construction materials including:

  • Concrete – slump, temperature, cube making and compressive strength, chloride permeability, water absorption, etc
  • Cement – durability, soundness, etc
  • Steel – tensile strength, bend, rebend, etc
  • Asphalt – Marshall mix design, coring, etc
  • Pulverised Fuel Ash (PFA)
  • Hollow blocks
  • Paving blocks
  • Terrazzo tiles
  • Shotcrete panels

 

All sampling and testing is carried out by our qualified technicians in accordance with BS, ASTM standards and with QCS2014.

We also establish, staff and operate site laboratories at construction sites equipped to carry out a wide range of testing including in-situ testing and sampling.

Chemical testing of construction materials is carried out at our St.2 facilities.
