In the absence of designated applicable specifications covering requirements for quality of materials, the following specifications shall govern: This sentence is an invitation to every specifier and purchaser to be explicit about the quality of raw materials desired or requirements for the use of specific materials or a particular brand of product. Without any such special or specific requirements or a complete list of material requirements, the ready-mixed concrete manufacturer is obligated to meet the requirements of Section 5. Note that it is not the manufacturer's obligation to determine the proper materials based upon a set of project criteria. It remains the responsibility of the purchaser or the designated agent to determine specific material criteria and to identify these specific criteria to the manufacturer (producer) in advance of pricing and ordering. Defaults are provided for some materials not covered by specific information from the purchaser.
