Significance and Use
4.1 The results obtained by this test method should serve as a guide in, but not as the sole basis for, selection of aggregates for use in sulfur polymer cement concrete and other chemical-resistant polymer concretes for a particular application. No attempt has been made to incorporate in the test method all the various factors that may affect the performance of a material when subjected to actual service.
4.2 This test method assists in determining whether aggregates are susceptible to attack by solutions in the environment of intended use.
4.3 This is not a test for permeability and results are not to be interpreted as a measurement of, or indication of, permeability of the material tested.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the effects of selected environments on aggregates for use in manufacturing sulfur polymer cement concrete (SC) and other chemical-resistant polymer concretes.
1.2 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.
1.3 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.
