EXPERIMENTATIONS Laboratory is authorized by the Italian Ministries of Infrastructures and Economic Development to provide testing and certification services on construction materials according to the Italian art.59 of D.P.R. 380 of 06/06/2001

The actual technical regulations and standards for constructions clearly require that the tests on building materials must be carried out and certified by an authorized laboratory.
SGM Material Laboratory operates since 1990 and has been authorized to issue official certificates, with DM n. 39194 of 14.01.1994 and following, by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transportation.
In addition to the official testing activities, the laboratory is also available, for public authorities and privates, to carry out tests on any type of material, such as, for example, aggregates for the CE marking in accordance with the product standards UNI EN 12620, UNI EN 13043, UNI EN 13242, etc.
The Laboratory carry out sampling and testing of materials also at quarries, warehouses, buildings and construction sites using specific equipped vehicles. When necessary and required, site laboratories are designed, equipped and managed at specific locations, either in Italy and abroad.
The list of principal materials tested at our laboratory, for determination of chemical/physical/mechanical properties, is shown hereafter:


  • Aggregates
  • Cement
  • Water
  • Fresh and hardened concrete
  • Cementitious or non-cementitious mortars
  • Additives for concrete


  • Structural steel for RC and PC
  • Steel for extruded profiles and pipes
  • Fasteners (bolts, nuts, screws, etc.).
