This specification covers brick made from clay or shale or mixtures thereof and are suitable for surfacing industrial floors. Four types of industrial floor bricks are covered: Types T, H, M, and L. Brick shall conform to the physical requirements for the type specified. Tolerances for deviation of face or edges of individual brick from a plane surface and from a straight line, respectively, shall not exceed the maximum values specified. The brick shall be sampled and tested for modulus of rupture, absorption, measurement of size, and measurement of warpage in accordance with the requirements specified and for chemical resistance in accordance with the sulfuric acid solubility test specified.
