• Uzin Announces 3rd Party Testing Complete for ASTM C1708 Standard

    Uzin Utz North America, Inc. announced today that they have completed final 3rd party testing of their cementitious self-leveling compounds against the requirements and criteria of the ASTM C1708 standard (Standard Test Methods for Self-leveling Mortars Containing Hydraulic Cements). The test methods in this standard are used to evaluate both freshly mixed properties such as the initial flow, flow retention, and healing time as well as hardened properties such as compressive strength, setting time and flexural strength of self-leveling mortars. Brian Preuss, UZIN Brand Manager stated, “It was important for us to submit our self-leveling compounds for independent testing against one of the most credible standards in our industry, and that’s the ASTM C1708. We did this to assure our customers that they can have continued confidence in our products quality and that they will perform as stated and as needed for their requirements. We constantly strive to bring the best products to market and that also includes adding this type of independent testing that offers true security for our customers and the industry as a whole.” The company also stated that these more expansive independent tests will now be a normal part of their product development process moving forward. TEC Services, Inc. of Lawrenceville, GA conducted the independent testing which included a random product selection process obtaining product samples on the open market. All of these new test certifications can be found on the company’s website at us.uzin.com.
