    Significance and Use

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers chemical determination of the potential reactivity of an aggregate with alkalies in portland-cement concrete as indicated by the amount of reaction during 24 h at 80 ° C between 1 N sodium hydroxide solution and aggregate that has been crushed and sieved to pass a 300-m sieve and be retained on a 150-m sieve.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as 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. A specific precautionary statement is given in 5.7.1.
