Undetected objects or changes in material properties of concrete can lead to dangerous breakage or costly construction mistakes. Ground-penetrating radar concrete testing uses non-destructive radar pulses to image the subsurface and detect discrepancies in concrete.
In conjunction with concrete coring, Element offers complete ground-penetrating radar services for electrical conduits and mechanical upgrades that are safer and more efficient than the traditional X-ray method.
Ground-penetrating radar services
Element’s ground-penetrating radar services eliminate the need to mobilize your own crew after-hours by bringing the service to you directly. Rather than hiring a traditional team, we can send one expert technician to image concrete without stopping construction.
Ground-penetrating radar services detect any elements you want to avoid, including tendons, structural steel, rebar, and electrical conduits, helping to prevent costly mistakes. Our well-trained and experienced construction materials technicians can help to core existing slab, and if requested, we can provide our on-site coring crew to core drill your slab.

Anchor Bolt Testing
Find out how Element's anchor bolt testing services can examine how your concrete and masonry anchors will perform with varying materials under varying conditions.
Radiographic Inspection (RT)
Element has the capabilities to perform conventional film radiography to Computed and Digital radiography, a highly sensitive method that produces an image in a digital format that is viewable on any laptop or computer.
Ultrasonic Testing (UT)
Our inspectors use ultrasonic waveforms to pass through a material to detect flaws and provide a complete volumetric inspection. Contact testing, Phased Array and the Immersion technique are available for complex geometric parts that otherwise may not be subject to complete volumetric inspection.
