Standard Test Method for Chemical Shrinkage of Hydraulic Cement Paste
|Publication Date:||15 October 2012|
|ICS Code (Cement. Gypsum. Lime. Mortar):||91.100.10|
This test method measures the internal (absolute) volume change of hydraulic cement paste that results from the hydration of the cementitious materials. This volume change is known as chemical shrinkage.
Procedure A, volumetric method.
Procedure B, the density method.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. (Warning-Fresh hydraulic cementitious mixtures are caustic and may cause chemical burns to skin and tissue upon prolonged exposure.2)
