ASTM - C1810/C1810M REV A

Standard Guide for Comparing Performance of Concrete-Making Materials Using Mortar Mixtures

active, Most Current
Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 11 August 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 7
scope:

This guide provides information on how to compare the relative performance and potential incompatibility of combinations of concrete-making materials. Performance tests on fresh and early-age properties of mortar mixtures can be useful indicators of concrete performance using similar materials. The performance tests described in this guide include mortar-slump, mortar spread, mortar-workability retention, time of setting, air entrainment, and hydration kinetics.

Units-The values stated in either SI units or inchpound 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 nonconformance with this guide. Some values only have SI units because the inch-pound equivalents are not used in guide.

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. Warning-Fresh hydraulic cementitious mixtures are caustic and may cause burns to skin and tissue upon prolonged exposure.2

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.
