Cube Mold for Cement Tests

Certified Material Testing Products features a large variety of ASTM and AASHTO cube cement molds form samples with cover plate and a detachable brass base plate and self aligning thumb screws, as well as for Portland Cement, concrete, cement mortar, grout, and capping compound as part of a complete line of concrete and cement test supplies that meet the requirements of ASTM and AASHTO standards.

The Bronze Cube Mold comes with a detachable brass base plate and the Stainless Steel Cube Mold meet the ASTM and AASHTO requirements.  These metal molds are accurately machined to produce 2in cubes in a diagonal position for compression testing. We also offer stainless steel and bronze cube mold kits that include a, tamping rod and curing cover with bronze clamp. Both come with self aligning thumb screws insure an even fit and hold the two mold halves securely. The bronze cover plate is sold separately. 

For internal QC purposes, Certified Material Testing Products recommend the Three Piece Plastic Econ-O-Cube Mold that is reusable, has a detachable base and is held together by self-aligning thumb screws that ensures a strong, tight fit. Certified Material Testing Products is a one-stop shop for high-quality products at competitive prices.

The cube mold for cement tests with self-aligning thumb screws play a crucial role in cement mortar tests as they are used to form samples of mortar or concrete for various tests, including compressive strength testing. These molds provide a standardized shape and size for consistent and reliable evaluation of cementitious materials including its use with Portland cement.

The Cube Mold is typically made of rigid materials such as metal or plastic. They are designed in the shape of a cube with sides measuring 50 mm or 100 mm (2 inches or 4 inches) in length. The molds are open at the top and bottom to allow for filling and demolding of the samples. The mold halves securely for compression testing.

In compressive strength testing, these molds are filled with a mixture of cement, aggregate, and water in specific proportions. The mixture is carefully compacted into the mold to ensure uniformity and eliminate voids. The top surface is leveled, and excess material is removed. After the initial setting, the cube samples are demolded and cured under controlled conditions, usually in a curing chamber or water bath.

Once the designated curing period is completed, the cube samples are subjected to compressive loading using a testing machine. The load is applied gradually until failure occurs, and the maximum load at failure is recorded. This load is used to calculate the compressive strength of the cementitious material including portland cement mortars lime.

Molds for cement tests provide a standardized and consistent shape for evaluating the compressive strength of cement. They ensure uniformity in sample preparation, allowing for accurate comparison of results obtained from different cement batches, mix designs, or testing laboratories.

These molds also facilitate quality control during cement production, enabling manufacturers to assess the performance and conformity of their products. The results obtained from cube testing assist engineers and researchers in evaluating the suitability of cement for specific construction applications, designing concrete mixes, and assessing the durability of concrete structures.

Our cement cube molds feature a horizontal or diagonal arrangement. They are made of durable materials like stainless steel, bronze and engineered plastic that resists mild acids, mortar and cement. We also offer a single-cavity concrete cube mold to cast specimens for concrete compressive strength and mortar penetration testing.

In summary, mold for cement tests are essential tools in testing, providing a standardized and consistent shape for preparing mortar or concrete samples. They allow for accurate measurement of compressive strength, aid in quality control, and assist in the evaluation and optimization of cementitious materials for construction purposes.
