ASTM WK44264

    Revision of C1738 / C1738M - 13 Standard Practice for High-Shear Mixing of Hydraulic Cement Paste

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C1738 / C1738M - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: C01.22 | Committee C01 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    A previous ballot aimed to simplify the usage of this standard by other application, adding a section clarifying the amount of materials that can be loaded in the mixer. If too much or too little material is loaded, the mixer will not perform as expected. The ballot received several negatives and comments, stating that the section was not clear enough and that the information should be in a note, instead of in a mandatory portion of the standard. The current ballot addresses these negatives.
