Historical (view previous versions of standard)
Significance and Use
Siliceous alkaline substrates are subject to water damage that may result in deterioration. Water repellents can provide protection of siliceous alkaline substrates exposed to water. This test method is used to evaluate the efficacy of clear water repellents on alkaline substrates.
1.1 This test method evaluates the effectiveness of clear water repellents on hydraulic cement mortar specimens based on water absorption after a water soak.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
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.
