1.1 This specification covers gypsum mill-mixed plaster, gypsum neat plaster, gypsum wood-fibered plaster, and gypsum gauging plaster.
Note 1—Specification C842 contains application procedures for interior gypsum plaster.
1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. This paragraph does not apply to the appendix.
