Keywordssupplementary cementitious material; performance-based specification
There is a need in the concrete industry for a means of specifying a supplementary cementitious material (SCM) for materials that do not meet an existing standard (for example, C618, C989, C1240). This ballot item is for a performance-based specification for SCMs to address this need.
The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.Back to Top
