Standard Specification for Architectural Cast Stone
|Publication Date:||1 July 2010|
|ICS Code (Masonry):||91.080.30|
1.1 This specification includes the physical properties, sampling, testing, tolerance, and appearance requirements for architectural cast stone.
1.2 Units covered by this specification may be made from facing and backup mixtures or from a homogeneous mixture. Either wet cast or dry cast production methods may be used.
1.3 Surface textures, finish, color, or other special features should be specified separately by the purchaser.
1.4 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.
1.5 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.

This specification establishes the physical requirements, sampling, testing, and visual inspection of architectural cast stone that may be made from facing and backup mixtures or from a homogeneous mixture, produced either by wet or dry casting. Conformances for raw materials, Portland cement, aggregates, coloring pigment, reinforcement, chemical admixtures, air entraining admixtures, water reducing and accelerating admixtures, ground slag, fly ash or natural pozzolan, and other consituents shall be precisely observed. Products shall also conform to specified physical and performance requirements such as compressive strength, cold water absorption, boiling water absorption, air content, field testing, resistance to freezing and thawing, and linear drying shrinkage.View Less
