   Cube Mold (ASTM)

Welcome to Maxim Ercon Ltd.



Product Name: 
 Cement Cube Mold (ASTM)
 Maxim Instruments



Designed and manufactured in strict conformance to ASTM standards, the CE1  three gang Cube Mold is used to form 2" (50mm) tube samples for compressive strength testing of port land cement, mortars, time gypsum and capping compounds.

The main feature in the Maxim Cube Mold design is the wide flange constructions of the molds top and base. This wide flange simplifies the striking of excess amounts of cement when the cubes are being prepared and gives greater stability to the mold in storage, preparation and cutting. The sturdy flanges prevent warping of the mold during use. Warping has been the cause of cement cube molds losing their dimensions and angular tolerances.

Another important feature is the use of mechanical screw clamps to connect the two halves of the mold so they can be drawn tightly together. This same feature is important in removing cubes from the mold. With an unscrewing action on the clamps, the two sides of the mold can be drawn apart uniformly. This eliminates prying the mold sections apart with a trowel, knife or other sharp instrument a practice which destroyed mold surface and springs the mold out of tolerance. The “T” bolts are held in place by snap rings, which precludes loss and allows for ready replacement should the “T” bolt be damaged. To facilitate clearing of the mold at of its surfaces are clean lined and smooth.




  • Manufactured in strict conformance to ASTM and AASHTO specifications.
  • Three-gang designed for multiple sample preparation.
  • Wide flange designed for mold stability and performance.
  • Precision machined cast iron construction for accuracy and correction resistance.
