Standard Test Method for Flowability and Bearing Area of Chemical-Resistant Polymer Machinery Grouts
|Publication Date:||15 December 2018|
|ICS Code (Manufacturing processes in the rubber and plastics industries):||83.020|
This test method covers the measure of flowability of chemical-resistant polymer machinery grouts as evaluated in a 50-mm [2-in.] or 25-mm [1-in.] pour thickness in a laboratory setting. The test method provides for the assessment of upper surface plate contact area (bearing area). These grouts will typically be at least two component formulations that may be used for installations where grout thickness will range from 25 to 150 mm [1 to 6 in.] underneath the base or plates being grouted.
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.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
