Active Standard ASTM C821 | Developed by Subcommittee: C07.02
Book of Standards Volume: 04.01
This specification covers all types of commercial hydrated lime such as: high-calcium, magnesium, or dolomitic-hydrated lime. This lime is used with pozzolans. The lime shall conform to the required physical and chemical limits: chemical factor, blaine fineness, and pozzolanic receptivity index. The following test methods shall be done: determination of calcium oxide, magnesium oxide, and carbon dioxide; calculation of chemical factor; blaine fineness; pozzolanic receptivity index; lime-pozzolan strength; and lime-pozzolan-aggregate strength and freeze-thaw resistance.
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 specification covers all types of commercial hydrated lime such as: high-calcium, magnesium, or dolomitic-hydrated lime. By-product limes and slaked quick limes in dry, wet, or slurried form are also included.
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.
