ICS Code (Cement. Gypsum. Lime. Mortar): 91.100.10
ICS Code (Concrete and concrete products): 91.100.30
scope:

1.1 This specification covers the production, properties, packaging, and testing of packaged, dry, combined materials for concrete and mortars. The types of concrete and mortar covered are described in the following paragraphs in this section. Some of the mixtures covered by this specification may not be available in some areas.

1.1.1 High-Early Strength ConcreteFor concrete building and repair jobs requiring a more rapid strength development such as required for the earlier removal of forms.

1.1.2 Normal Strength ConcreteNormal Weight ConcreteFor general concrete building and repair jobs where thicknesses exceed 50 mm [2 in.]. Typical uses include building or repairing sidewalks, patios, steps, footings, and for setting posts.

Lightweight Concrete Using Normal Weight Sand

For concrete building and repair jobs where lower concrete weights are desirable. These mixtures will produce concrete which is about 15 to 25 % lighter in weight than normal weight concrete.

Lightweight Concrete

For concrete building and repair jobs where the lightest concrete weight is desirable. These mixtures will produce concrete which is about 25 to 35 % lighter in weight than normal weight concrete.

1.1.3 High-Strength MortarFor general concrete work requiring thicknesses of less than 50 mm [2 in.] or where a high-strength grout mixture is required. Typical uses include topping, patching, and stuccoing. Often referred to as sand mix.

1.1.4 Mortars for Unit MasonryFor laying brick, block, and stone, and for masonry repairs. The following three types of masonry mortar are covered:

Type N

For general masonry work requiring normal mortar properties.

Type S

For use where a higher strength masonry mortar is required.

Type M

For use where the highest strength masonry mortar is required.

1.2 The values stated in either SI or inch-pound units shall be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.

1.3 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method portion of this specification. 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.
