Standard Performance Speciﬁcation for
This standard is issued under the ﬁxed designation C 1157; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A superscript epsilon (e) indicates aneditorial change since the last revision or reapproval.
1. Scope 1.1 This speciﬁcation covers hydraulic cements for both general and special applications. This is a speciﬁcation giving performance requirements. There are no restrictions on the composition of the cement or its constituents. 1.2 The speciﬁcation classiﬁes cements by type based on speciﬁc requirements for general use, high earlystrength, resistance to attack by sulfates, and heat of hydration. Optional requirements are provided for the property of low reactivity with alkali-reactive aggregates. 1.3 For properties where values are given in both SI and inch-pound units, the values in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. Values in SI units shall be obtained by measurement in SI units or by appropriate conversion, usingthe Rules for Conversion and Rounding given in IEEE/ASTM SI 10, of measurements made in other units. 1.4 The text of this standard refers to notes and footnotes that provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and ﬁgures) are not requirements of the standard. 1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with itsuse. 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.
NOTE 1—Speciﬁcation C 150 is a prescription speciﬁcation for portland cement and Speciﬁcations C 595 is a speciﬁcation for blended hydraulic cement where the products that may be furnished are of restricted natureand proportions and where the products must meet prescriptive requirements as to chemical and physical properties.
