Significance and Use

5.1 This test method applies to materials used in making epoxy-mortar overlays for concrete pavement. If debonding occurs between the overlay and the pavement, the material is unsuitable.

5.2 This test method evaluates the ability of an overlay to remain bonded to a concrete substrate during repeated thermal cycling in air over a significant temperature range and is not intended to duplicate temperature fluctuations in the field.


1.1 This test method covers the determination of which epoxy-resin formulations are subject to debonding when used as overlays for concrete when the combination of the two is subjected to temperature changes that may be met in the field.

1.2 Units—The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the specification.

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. A specific hazard statement is given in Section 8. . (Warning—Fresh hydraulic cementitious mixtures are caustic and may cause chemical burns to exposed skin and tissue upon prolonged exposure.)2
