|Publication Date:||1 June 2008|
|ICS Code (Cement. Gypsum. Lime. Mortar):||91.100.10|
significance And Use:
The purpose of this test method is to establish whether a cement complies with a specification limit on Gillmore time of setting.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the time of setting of hydraulic-cement paste by means of the Gillmore needles.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.3 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. The use of gloves, protective clothing, and eye protection is recommended. Wash contact area with copious amounts of water after contact. Wash eyes for a minimum of 15 min. Avoid exposure of the body to clothing saturated with the liquid phase of the unhardened material. Remove contaminated clothing immediately after exposure.
