This specification covers gypsum, calcium sulfate combined with two molecules of water in crystalline form. If necessary, gypsum shall be crushed or ground, or both, to the size specified. Different test methods shall be performed in order to determine the chemical composition and physical properties of gypsum.
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 gypsum, calcium sulfate combined with two molecules of water in crystalline form and having the approximate chemical formula CaSO4·2H2O.
1.2 The values stated in either inch-pound units or SI (metric) are to be regarded separately as the standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system shall be used independently of the other. Values from the two systems shall not be combined.
1.3 The text of this specification references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the specification.
2. Referenced Documents (purchase separately) The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
