ASTM WK47024

    Revision of C185 - 08 Standard Test Method for Air Content of Hydraulic Cement Mortar

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C185 - 08

    Developed by Subcommittee: C01.21 | Committee C01 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The C1437 standard allows the tester to strike off the cup with a straight edge or trowel while C185 only allows for a straight edge. After discussion within the C185 subcommittee at the June ASTM meeting, it was agreed there is no significant affect in using the trowel (as long as the trowel meets the planeness standard requirements).
