Standard Specification for Granite Dimension Stone
|Publication Date:||1 January 2011|
This specification covers the material characteristics, physical requirements, and sampling appropriate to the selection of granite for general building and structural purposes. Refer to Guides C1242 and C1528 for the appropriate selection and use of granite dimension stone.
Granite dimension stone shall include stone that is sawed, cut, split, or otherwise finished or shaped, and shall specifically exclude molded, cast, or otherwise artificially aggregated units composed of fragments, crushed and broken stone.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
