The World of Concrete was introduced to the commercial construction industry in Houston, Texas in February 1975. Presented were 77 exhibiting companies in 22,200 net square feet of exhibit space with 1,550 construction industry professionals in attendance. 39 years later, World of Concrete now boasts more than 1,250 exhibiting companies and had over 48,000 registered industry professionals in more than 570,000 square feet of exhibit space. The addition of World of Masonry and Technology for Construction expanded the range of attendees to include these important segments of the construction industry.
This show represents a significant chance for our customers to try the equipment and to provide us with feedback on what they are looking for. On display were;
Windsor Probe™ Test System: A Non Destructive Test System for Concrete Compressive Strength in the field. Safe, Quick, and Simple to use it is the most effective method of Concrete Compressive Strength Testing on Site. The System performs equally well on standard and high performance concrete. Conforms to ASTM C-805 and other International Standards.
Windsor Pin™ Test System: A unique instrument for measuring the strength of new or existing concrete, mortar and other construction materials in the field utilizing the established principle of resistance to penetration. A unique chuck allows testing of mortar joints compressive strength in the field. Conforms to ASTM C-803.

Trident™:A Microwave Meter Used for the Rapid Determination of Moisture Content in Sand and Other Fine or Coarse Aggregates. It is fast and easy to use as well as completely portable.
Michael W. Hoag, President were available to answer customer questions. ‘We want to thank all the customers we met at this event and look forward to working with them n the coming year.’ says Michael Hoag, President of James Instruments Inc.
James Instruments specializes in Non-Destructive testing equipment for concrete and other construction materials. Central to the improvement of the concrete infrastructure are tools that evaluate the condition of existing construction. Destructive and non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques are applied. Destructive tests can provide direct information, but are relatively expensive, time-consuming and cause damage to the structure. Destructive test results often cannot be evaluated using statistical approaches because the number of locations in the structure that can be tested without damage to the structure is limited. On the other hand, NDT techniques are relatively inexpensive to apply, and they can detect, localize, and characterize flaws and damage in concrete structures without leaving any undesirable discontinuities or causing damage
to concrete members.
James Instruments Inc. is the leading manufacturer of non-destructive test equipment for construction materials, specifically concrete, ceramic, wood and other coarse grained materials. We supply the instruments that measure and analyze strength, structure, corrosion and moisture in concrete and other construction materials. And more. James Instruments -- rugged, quality equipment for field use -- backed by factory service and an ongoing program of research and development.
World of Concrete is the industry’s leading annual international event dedicated to the commercial concrete and masonry construction industries. Featuring indoor and outdoor exhibits with the industry’s leading suppliers showcasing innovative products and technologies, exciting demonstrations and competitions, and a world - class education program.
