This practice provides detailed information on the handling and proper use of chemical-resistant resin grouts for filling joints of chemical-resistant brick or tile. For hand mixing, clean nonabsorbent pails or mortar boxes shall be used with paddles, trowels, or spatulas as mixing tools. For power mixing, a suitable size mechanical mixer operated at speeds so as to prevent air entrapment shall be utilized. Procedures for mixing and handling of resin grouts, setting of brick or tile into sand-cement or chemical-resistant setting beds, grouting of brick or tile, surface cleaning using steam or hot water, and curing for damage or contamination protection are discussed.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This practice provides detailed information on the handling and proper use of chemical-resistant resin grouts for filling joints of chemical-resistant brick or tile such as those covered in Specification C658.
—Resin grouts and mortars are differentiated as follows: Resin grouts are applied to joints, generally 1/4 in. (6 mm) wide, after the brick or tile are set in place and the setting bed has hardened (grouting or tilesetter's method). Resin mortars are troweled onto the brick or tile in sufficient quantity to achieve a 1/8-in. (3-mm) thick joint after the brick or tile are laid in place (buttering or bricklayer's method). (See Practice C399.)
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.
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.
