Example text

When the sand is well proportioned of both fine and coarse grains, the smaller grains fill these voids and produce mortars that are more workable and plastic. If the percentage of fine particles is too high, more cement is required to coat the particles thoroughly, more mixing water is required to produce good workability, and the mortar will be weaker, more porous, and subject to greater volume shrinkage. Figure 2-12 ASTM C1329 requirements for mortar cements. (Copyright ASTM, 100 Barr Harbor Drive, West Conshohocken, PA 19428.

Most well-burned clay masonry, including conventional face brick, building brick, structural clay tile, and ceramic glazed units, has excellent resistance to chemicals and chemical agents. In some installations, however, such as waste treatment facilities, dairies, chemical plants, refineries, and food processing plants, extraordinary resistance may be required. Chemicalresistant bricks or acid-proof bricks are machine-made, uncored, kiln-fired units made specifically for this purpose. com) Copyright © 2004 The McGraw-Hill Companies.

Building brick (sometimes called common brick) is used primarily as a structural material or as a backing for other finishes, where strength and durability are of more importance than appearance. Under ASTM C62, Standard Specification for Building Brick, grading is based on physical requirements and directly related to durability and resistance to weathering (see Fig. 3-2). Grade SW (severe weathering) is used where a high degree of resistance to frost action is required and where conditions of exposure indicate the possibility of freezing when the unit is permeated with water.
