Movement occurs in astn floors due to contraction of concrete, mortars and grouts; expansion due to heat and the growth of the ceramic materials, and differential movements between walls, floors, columns and other building elements.

ASTM C – 13 Standard Specification for Chemical-Resistant Masonry Units

The bricks and tiles are considered to be of three types as follows: The masonry units shall undergo tests and adhere accordingly to the following physical and chemical requirements: Table 2 C Table 2 C BoxCanton, Ohio Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

Expansion and Contraction Joints: This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Grout and mortar for joints in brick, and mortar for bedding brick as well as chemical resistant membranes must be selected to meet anticipated corrosive and thermal conditions. Cleaning compound asgm as phosphoric acid, trisodium phosphate, sodium hypochlorite and chlorine, bromine or iodine- releasing agents may attach the flooring materials.


Installed costs will vary by types of units, floor membrane and mortar requirements, types of construction, location of project and local bidding practices. Practices developed from experience coupled with standard control methods must be utilized in designing compensation for movement. As an article, an MSDS is not required and the asym is exempt from all other requirements of the hazardous communication standard.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The recommendations of the grout or mortar manufacturer must be obtained to positively establish the chemical and thermal resistance of a particular flooring system. Sealants and back-up foam rods are limited life materials and must be replaced at the first sign of deterioration atsm order to prevent corrosive reagents from penetrating and undermining the chemically resistant brick floor.

Joint sealants used must be chemically resistant, elastic and bond extremely well with the brick. Available in all 50 states, Canada and for export.

ast This specification covers chemical-resistant masonry units, specifically, solid kiln fired bricks and tiles made from clay, shale, or mixtures thereof, suitable for indoor and outdoor use in masonry construction subjected to chemical environments. Type I, for use where low absorption and high acid resistance are not major factors; Type II, for use where lower absorption and higher acid resistance are required; and Type III, for use where minimum absorption and maximum acid resistance are required.


It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Modulus of Rupture Min.

The brick and tile are normally used with chemical-resistant mortars. Care in handling pre-waxed floor brick must be taken to avoid stacking brick asstm the job with a waxed surface contacting an unwaxed surface. Finished face on shale vertical fibre and fireclay pavers are available in wirecut texture only.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Chemical Resistant Brick: Product Data Sheet

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Cost information for a particular project and application can be obtained from authorized distributors in the individual project area.

In chemically resistant floors polyethylene foam backer rods are recommended. Expansion joints should be inspected frequently as part of a normal maintenance program.
