Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This practice details the proper storage, mixing, and use of chemically setting silicate and silica mortars for bonding chemical-resistant brick or tile to obtain the optimum chemical resistance and physical strength of the mortar. This practice does not apply to the air-setting type of silicate and silica chemical-resistant mortars. Chemical-resistant bricks or tiles conforming to given specifications are considered satisfactory for use with these mortars.
