In today’s building environment, the emphasis is on safe, permanent, low maintenance products, of which stone leads the list in the minds of architects, designers, and consumers worldwide. View our list of current requirements. Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets. These standards also serve as benchmarks for quality limits of products.

This machine includes an adjustable crosshead with mounting features to accept and center the upper portion of the flexural test fixture. These committees are made up of several subcommittees which are tasked to develop and discuss individual segments within the committee’s jurisdiction. These committees meet on a regular basis to discuss and present c80 for each new or existing standard. Most architectural specifications require that stone meet certain specified ASTM or other testing standards before it will be accepted for use.

Subscribe to Our Newsletters. C88 testing method helps determine the differences in flexural strength bewtween stones of varying dimension and is one element in comparing stones of the same type. Dimension stone Test Procedure: Why ASTM standards and other like standards are important. WaveMatrix 2 for Dynamic Testing.
