This specification covers the materials for use in hydraulic-cement concrete mixtures to be placed by wet-mix and dry-mix shotcreting. It does not however cover mixing, placement, curing, or protection of the concrete placed by shotcreting. The materials used as ingredients shall consist of cements, aggregates, water, mineral and chemical admixtures, and fibers. Testing, number of tests, and retests shall be performed on the specified materials to ensure the quality of the materials.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers materials for use in hydraulic-cement concrete mixtures to be placed by shotcreting. It does not cover mixing, placement, curing, or protection of the concrete placed by shotcreting.
