Revision of C979/C979M-16 Standard Specification for Pigments for Integrally Colored Concrete


The use and availability of ASTM C595 Type IL cement has become more prevalent than ASTM
C150 Type I cement in many markets, if not the only available cement. Type IL is currently a large portion of the cement produced in the US and growing. Several of the largest cement producers in the US are
currently working towards 100% type IL production. As such, this ballot item is updating ASTM C979/C979M to
allow for its use consistent with activities in other standards within C01 and C09.
