The paper emphasizes on the effect of shuttering material on surface hardness and compressive strength of concrete cubes of multiple mix design grade based on rebound hammer and compressive testing machine. American Standard and British Standards codes have mentioned the effect of formwork material on rebound number. But the Indian standard codes have not included it. The mould materials used are Cast iron, wooden and shuttering plywood. Compressive strength and surface hardness of total 108 cubes were found out and the results obtained were represented in graphical format. The paper exhibits result and conclusion based on experimental work.
