1.1 This specification covers the minimum product specifications for adhered manufactured stone masonry veneer (AMSMV) units applied as a masonry veneer adhered to exterior and interior walls, structures, columns, landscape structures, and other structures suitable to receive AMSMV units. 1.2 The property requirements of this specification apply at the time of delivery. The use of test results from installed AMSMV units in determining conformance or nonconformance to the requirements of this standard is beyond the scope of this specification. 1.3 The AMSMV units described by this specification are manufactured from a mixture of cements, normal and lightweight aggregates, water, additives, and other components which are wet-cast into shapes simulating natural stone, brick, and other textures. This specification is limited to requirements for the physical attributes of AMSMV units. 1.4 The specification values are in inch-pound units, which are regarded as standard. The SI units, presented in parenthesis, are mathematical conversions that are provided for informational purposes only. 1.5 The text of this specification references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes shall not be considered as requirements of the standard. 1.6 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 of AMSMV units.
The lack of a uniform and nationally recognized product standard have allowed untested and substandard products to find their way into both residential and commercial construction. The development of these standards would create the critical definitions and procedures needed by project owners, as well as design and installation professionals.
