Requirements include both the composition as well as the properties and performance of the cement. A sampling and testing regime is specified for product conformity claims.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies minimum requirements for hydraulic cements including general purpose and blended cements. It does not purport to provide for all the requirements that may be needed in specific applications of such cements.NOTES:1 Information on the interpretation of this Standard as a performance-based specification of cement is given in Appendix A.2 Some additional information on applications and limitation of this Standard is included in the Preface.
