Book of Standards Volume: 04.05
This specification establishes the minimum product requirements for adhered manufactured stone masonry veneer (AMSMV) units which are manufactured from cementitious materials, aggregates, air-entraining admixtures, concrete admixtures, coloring pigments, reinforcement fibers, and other components which are wet-cast into shapes simulating the appearance of stone, rocks found in nature, and other textures. It also addresses sampling, physical properties and testing, finish and appearance, product identification and packaging, and reporting.
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.

1.1 This specification covers the minimum product requirements for adhered manufactured stone masonry veneer (AMSMV) units applied as an adhered veneer to exterior and interior walls and structures suitable to receive AMSMV units.
1.3 The AMSMV units described by this specification are manufactured from a mixture of cement, normal or lightweight aggregates (or a combination of both), water, admixtures, other cementitious materials and other components which are wet-cast into shapes simulating the appearance of natural stone and other textures.
1.4 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.
1.6 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 of AMSMV units.
