Rock materials

Rock materials and wood are our oldest building materials with a more than thousand years old tradition. They have continued into modern times and now constitute the most environmentally friendly building products. In addition, natural stone is the most durable of all building materials. However, selecting a suitable rock is a prerequisite for a high quality product, be it aggregates, concrete or natural stones.

Swedish competence centre for rock materials

CBI Swedish cement and concrete research institute has, together with SP, formed the Swedish competence centre for rock materials. We have thereby the necessary resources to offer to our customers a complete service for analysis in micro- and laboratory scale, mathematical modelling in full scale and determination of the performance in the construction and, in many cases, how to the assure the quality of the production and render it more efficient.
