Igne is a leading provider of laboratory construction material testing services in the UK. Part of our offering includes a variety of construction materials tests with the inclusion of binders to modify or stabilise materials (often referred to as hydraulically bound) which are unsuitable for use in construction projects in their existing condition due to poor strength or high moisture contents.
