C Specification for Admixtures for Masonry Mortars. Since jobsite water additions may not be the same as those in the laboratory, the properties of field mixed mortar cannot be compared to the property requirements of ASTM C Portland cement-lime mortars are specified in two steps. Please help us to share our service with your friends.
It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. The property specification requires that the mortar exhibit certain characteristics when tested under laboratory conditions.
ASTM C – 14a Standard Specification for Mortar for Unit Masonry
C Specification for Admixtures for Masonry Mortars. 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. Foundation wall, retaining wall, manholes, sewers, pavements, walks, and patios. We are a non-profit group that run this website to share documents. Skip to main content. When neither proportion nor property specifications are specified, the proportion specifications shall govern, unless data are presented to and accepted by the specifier to show that mortar meets the ast, of the property specifications.
This specification does not cover the determination of mortar strengths through field testing. The property specification of this standard applies to mortar mixed to a specific flow in the laboratory. Our liability is expressly limited to replacement of defective goods. These notes and footnotes excluding those in tables and figures shall not be considered as requirements of the standard. 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.
Current edition approved Dec. Last previous edition approved in as C — Type M mortar has the highest strength. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents ast this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

These notes and footnotes excluding those in tables and figures shall not be considered as requirements of the standard. As seen in Table 4, compressive strength, water retention and air content tests are required to be performed on the mortar mixed in the laboratory. The compressive strength values resulting from field tested mortars do not represent the compressive strength of mortar tested in the c207 nor that of the mortar in the wall. 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.
These densities are shown in Table 2.
Mortar for such masonry should be selected with due caution.
