    Significance and Use

    4.1 This practice is for making specimens of SC in a standard way so that comparative testing can be performed by various producers and users. Use of this practice to prepare specimens for laboratory testing will reduce variability that might be introduced by different methods of casting and by the use of a variety of specimen shapes and sizes.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers procedures for making and conditioning test specimens of chemical-resistant sulfur polymer cement concrete (SC) in the laboratory. The specimens are cast under accurate control of materials and test conditions using aggregate and sulfur polymer cement (SPC) to make SC that can be consolidated by rodding, as described in this practice.

    1.2 Sulfur polymer cement may be furnished as a single or multiple component system.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
