Liquid Asphalt & Emulsion Laboratory

Construction Consulting & Testing has been performing Performance Graded Binder testing services for clients including contractors, refineries, polymer and latex suppliers and Departments of Transportation. As a result we have developed a wealth of knowledge and experience in the binder industry. Construction Consulting & Testing is an AASHTO accredited binder lab, which is independently owned and operated to provide professional engineering and testing services custom to our clients needs. It has been our experience that variations in RAP sources, different binder suppliers and even different production times throughout the year from the same binder supplier will have a significant impact on the outcome of the Performance Graded test results. Due to these variations it is critical that you have an understanding of your binder resources as well as maintain an on going binder Quality Control program throughout the year.

Our state of the art liquid asphalt lab is unmatched by any other independent lab in the Midwest. CCT offers full service testing for performance (PG), viscosity & penetration graded asphalt cement, emulsion analysis & research, and specialized roofing & coal tar analysis.
