Accords to all standardised test methods for determining the length changes of hardened cement paste and mortar under different conditions. The moulds are used together with any of the Cooper Length Comparators (TCM-0200 or TCM-0210) to fit the specimens sizes.

Minimum surface hardness of TCM-0029 is HV400 which is recommended by the EN standard.

All mould surfaces are protected with anti-corrosion oil. Futhermore, all parts of the moulds are matchmarked.

The moulds are supplied with the steel inserts screwed on.

Reference rod and other equipment be should ordered separately.

For the purpose of determining the length changes (shrinkage/expansion) in hardened concrete- including aggregates, which has larger sized Dmax; TC-1153, TC-1155 or TC-1161 moulds are also used with TC-1170 Large type digital length comparator.
