4in Unbonded Capping Neoprene Pad Cap, 50 Durometer
Sold individually. Two are required for compression testing of concrete cylinders. Choose 12 in one box of 4in Unbonded Capping Neoprene Pad Cap, 50 Durometer
4in (101.6mm) Neoprene Pads are available in 50, 60, or 70 durometer for compressive strength testing of 4x8in concrete cylinders, and meet requirements of ASTM C1231/1231M and AASHTO T 22. These 0.5in (12.7mm) thick pads flow during compression to fill irregularities in cylinder ends and assure uniform load distribution. The 4in Steel Retainer Set is sold separately and is required to contain the pads at each end of the concrete cylinder. Two pads are required for testing. Pads are reusable in up to 100 tests, and are sold individually or in a package of 12.
The 4in, 50 Durometer Pads are suitable for testing concrete strengths from 1,500-6,000psi (10-40mPa).
Neoprene Compression Pads Strength
Compression pads are available in several hardnesses:
- 50 duro for design strength 1500 to 6000 psi
- 60 duro for design strength 2500 to 7000 psi
- 70 duro for design strength 4000 to 12000 psi
- 90 duro is designed for high strength compression
The Neoprene Caps are sold individually and two are required for compression testing of concrete cylinders.
Per ASTM C1231, the neoprene pad can be reused up to a maximum of 100 times.
Neoprene Pad Caps Meets Test Methods:
- AASHTO T22
- ASTM C 1231

The 4in Unbonded Capping Neoprene Pad Cap, 50 Durometer is a necessary tool for compression testing of concrete cylinders. Sold individually, it is important to note that two of these capping neoprene pad caps are required for the testing process.
These 4in (101.6mm) Neoprene Pads are available in 50, 60, or 70 durometer options, with the 50 durometer being suitable for concrete strengths ranging from 1,500-6,000psi (10-40mPa). These pads are designed to meet the requirements of ASTM C1231/1231M and AASHTO T 22, ensuring their reliability and accuracy during testing.
The 0.5in (12.7mm) thickness of the neoprene pads allows for the flow of the material during compression, filling any irregularities in the cylinder ends and guaranteeing uniform load distribution. To contain the pads securely at each end of the concrete cylinder, the 4in Steel Retainer Set is required and can be purchased separately.
It is worth noting that these neoprene pads are reusable and can withstand up to 100 tests, making them a cost-effective choice for multiple compression testing needs. They can be purchased individually or in a package of 12, depending on the user's requirements.
The neoprene pad caps meet the test methods outlined by AASHTO T22 and ASTM C 1231, ensuring that they comply with industry standards and regulations. This further solidifies their reliability and accuracy during compression testing procedures.
