ASTM C170/C170M – 17
This test is performed with the loading direction parallel to the rift as well as perpendicular to the rift. The standard requires at least five 2-in cubes which can be tested in a dry or wet condition and parallel or perpendicular to the rift direction.

ASTM C – 06 Standard Test Method for Compressive Strength of Dimension Stone
In addition, if testing is performed either perpendicular or parallel to the rift, please indicate the rift direction on the samples because it is often very difficult to identify the rift direction on small samples. Need help or have a question? WaveMatrix 2 for Dynamic Testing.

Description Literature Contact Us Dimension stone used in the construction industry requires durability testing.
Weights are recorded at the 46th, 47th, and 48thhours to ensure that the weight is the same. Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets. Additionally, specimens are also tested in a wet condition with atsm 48 hours water immersion prior to testing.
ASTM C170 Compressive Strength of Dimension Stone
The load is applied until failure and the load at the failure point is recorded. If the weights continue to drop then drying is continued until there are three successive hourly readings at the astmm weight. Global Reach Intertek is the industry leader with over 42, people in 1, axtm in over countries.
The various orientations of testing only apply if the rift can be determined. Software for Series Systems. Dimension stone used in the construction industry requires durability testing. Additionally, the machine includes a table which facilitates centering of the lower plane compression plate fixture.
