Standard Test Method for Covering Capacity and Volume Change Upon Drying of Thermal Insulating Cement
Includes all amendments and changes through Reapproval Notice , 2016
Published By:ASTM International (ASTM)
Wet covering capacity and volume change upon drying are often of major importance in the application of thermal insulating cement. These properties can be easily determined at the same time that the determinations of dry covering capacity are made. Therefore, the procedures for determining these three properties are covered together in this test method.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
