    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This specification covers extended life mortar as delivered for use in construction of non-reinforced or reinforced unit masonry.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee C12 on Mortars and Grouts for Unit Masonry, this specification was withdrawn in May 2019. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement. On technical review, it was realized that the specification contains compressive-strength requirements that are unrealistic, including C270 values for C780 field-cast specimens in either cubes or cylinders. There are currently no acceptable absolute compressive-strength values for C780 field-cast specimens. The C12 committee has purposely not put absolute values for of C780 field-cast compressive-strength specimens. The inclusion of absolute values for field-cast specimens in C1142 could create undesired precedents for other standards. In addition, the task group is not aware of any current users of extended-life mortar.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers extended life mortar as delivered for use in construction of non-reinforced or reinforced unit masonry.

    1.2 This specification is a property standard.

    1.3 Four types of mortar are covered: RM, RS, RN, and RO. These types of mortar can be manufactured by using one of the four mortar formulations with masonry aggregate: portland cement, portland cement-lime, masonry cement, or masonry cement with portland cements. The materials are listed in Section 5.

    1.4 Appendix X1 provides a rationale statement and commentary.
