Beam Mold Carrying Handle
QTY: Set of 2
Deslauriers' beam mold carrying handle allow safe transportation of mold and specimen
Beam specimens less than 48 hours old are very fragile and subject to micro-cracking that is not visible, but definitely adversely affects ultimate test strength. There are many causal factors that may create micro-cracking, but this cracking can be caused when the beams are lifted using the flanges of the mold or the opposite corners of the mold, which imparts torsional stress on the specimen.
