ASTM WK41840

    Revision of C1714 / C1714M - 13 Standard Specification for Preblended Dry Mortar Mix for Unit Masonry

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C1714 / C1714M - 13a

    Developed by Subcommittee: C12.03 | Committee C12 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    During the early stages of this standards development, Section 14 was written to include the obvious small paper and larger polywoven bags as well as the less obvious packages such as a large tanker. The term deliveries was originally used to indicate all of these available package options, but this leads to confusion. For example, a truck load of small bags may be considered a delivery. The term packages is more appropriate, so this ballot item makes this change. Also, this ballot item adds a note to preserve the initial reminder that a package may also be the less obvious tanker. The intent is to classify any single container of the mortar mix to be the package and the traceability refers to the actual mortar mix in this container to its original batch.
