Matergenics Soil Lab
Our dedicated soil lab has rapid turn-around times and is supported by a multidisciplinary team of soil specialists, NACE certified materials and corrosion engineers, CP design and installation specialists, coatings specialists, chemists, and certified lab and field technicians.
We provide soil testing for the following parameters:
Simple Soil Chemistry
pH, Resistivity, Chlorides, Sulfate, Sulfide, Moisture, Redox Potential
Based on ASTM Techniques
Instantaneous Corrosion Rate
Based on ASTM G96
Sulfate Reducing Bacteria (SRB)
Acid Producing Bacteria (APB)
Long Term Corrosion Behavior
Corrosion Mitigation Recommendation
Provides corrosion penetration as a function of time
Standard Soil Tests by Matergenics
-AASHTO T290: Sulfate Ion Content in Soil
-AASHTO T291: Chloride Ion Content in Soil
-ASTM C1580: Sulfate Ion Content in Soil
-ASTM D1498: Redox Potential of Water
-ASTM D2216: Moisture Content of Soil
-ASTM D2487: Soil Classification
-ASTM D421: Dry Prep SOIL SAMPLES
-ASTM D4318: Liquid Limit, Plastic Limit, Plastic Index of Soils
-ASTM D422: Particle Size Analysis of Soils
-ASTM D4972: pH of Soils
-ASTM G102: Corrosion Rate
-ASTM G51: pH of Soil for Corrosion
-ASTM G57: Soil Resistivity
-ASTM D4658: Sulfide Ion in Water

-ASTM D512: Chloride Ion in Water MIC Tests
In summary, we can determine soil chemistry, estimate soil corrosivity, quantify corrosion risk, predict the corrosion rate and life expectancy of given underground asset based on chemistry of a soil environment it is exposed to. Having this data will enable you to predict the remaining life and if you must install cathodic protection system to maintain your assets.
