Revision of C88/C88M-18 Standard Test Method for Soundness of Aggregates by Use of Sodium Sulfate or Magnesium Sulfate


Section 5 of the standard does not include a Temperature Measuring Device. This device is needed to confirm the temperature of the solution described in Section 9.1, and the temperature of the washing water used to remove the sulfate from the material described in Section 9.4. The balloted action is to add Section 5.8 to the standard that covers an appropriate Temperature Measuring Device for the procedure. Note, the balloted Temperature Measuring Device meets the requirements of AASHTO T104.
