Four types asym mortar are covered in each of two alternative specifications: These notes and footnotes excluding those in tables and figures shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.
Mortar for such masonry should be selected with due caution. Any claim shall be deemed waived unless made in writing to us within 30 days from the earlier of the date it was or reasonably should have been discovered.
ASTM Standard C provides both a proportion specification and a property specification for each mortar type. Portland cement-lime mortars should be specified by either the property or the proportion specification aztm not both. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
Thank you for interesting in our services. Current edition approved Dec. Originally approved in This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.

The property specification applies to mortar mixed to a specific flow in the laboratory. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the awtm of regulatory limitations prior to use.
There are no warranties that extend beyond the description contained herein. When neither proportion nor property specifications are specified, the proportion specifications shall govern, unless data are presented to and accepted by the specifier qstm show that mortar meets the requirements of the property specifications.
This specification provides the basis for five different mortar types Type K is listed in section X3 of the appendix depending on the strength of mortar needed for an application. The property specification requires that the mortar exhibit certain characteristics when tested under laboratory conditions. Table 3 details the recipes required for atsm mortar type specified by proportion.
ASTM C – 14a Standard Specification for Mortar for Unit Masonry
The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. This specification covers mortars for use in the construction of non-reinforced and reinforced unit masonry structures. For example, a 1: Type O mortar is recommended for use where the masonry is unlikely to be frozen when saturated, or unlikely to be subjected to high winds or other significant lateral loads.
This specification does not cover the determination of mortar strengths through field testing. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Four types of mortar are covered in each of two alternative specifications: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. We need your help! Type N hydrated lime products must be laboratory tested to insure that they meet the property specification for the applicable mortar type in order to be acceptable for the proportion specifications.
The compressive strength values resulting from field tested mortars do not represent the compressive strength of mortar tested in the laboratory nor that of the mortar in the wall. For the purposes of determining volumes, ASTM C provides typical bulk densities for portland cement, hydrated lime and sand.
Our liability is expressly limited to replacement of defective goods. For cement-lime mortars, the proportion specification will indicate the volume of portland cement followed by the volume of hydrated lime and finally the volume of sand.
We need your help to maintenance this website. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval.
When the property specification is used to qualify masonry mortars, the testing agency performing the test methods should be evaluated in accordance with Practice C Compliance to this specification is verified by confirming that the materials used are as specified, meet the requirements as given, and added to the mixer in the proper proportions as described.
Note c27 — When the property specification is used to qualify masonry mortars, the testing agency performing the test methods should be evaluated in accordance with Practice C Please fill this form, we will try to respond as soon as possible.
