Significance and Use
4.1 This test offers a method of determining the bond strength between chemical-resistant mortars and chemical-resistant brick. The results obtained by this test method should be used as a guide in, but not as the sole basis for, selection of a chemical-resistant material for a particular application. If failure is within the brick, then the result reported shall be stated as a minimum bond strength and it shall be noted that the brick broke.
1.2 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.
