ASTM WK42843

    Revision of C1272 - 11a Standard Specification for Heavy Vehicular Paving Brick

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C1272 - 14b

    Developed by Subcommittee: C15.02 | Committee C15 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    In Section 8, it is not clear as to what faces of a brick shall be free from chips or cracks. While the intent is to only have requirements on surfaces that are exposed, the language does not clearly identify those surfaces. The term finished face is used since it is the surface that should be examined. Finished face is also defined in ASTM C1232: face, finished, nany surface(s) of a manufactured masonry unit intended by the manufacturer to be exposed to view. The proposed wording is also consistent with other C15.02 standards.
