That Control Sample does not eliminate all other variables besides the polymer. Give one of our application engineers a call today for help with creating the best budget and testing plan according to ASTM C Please first log in with a verified email before subscribing to alerts. Yield measures the first cracking of the cement paste. This testing procedure is designed to measure and calculate three characteristic properties of the GFRC:.

The goal of the test was to determine whether dry polymers achieve similar flexural strengths as wet polymers in GFRC. When designing a testing program, first one must determine what exactly is being tested, and eliminate other variables that could confound the test results. By means of our concrete testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the testing solution that is right for you.

While choosing only to measure the Flexural Ultimate Strength of GFRC does provide a limited view of the full properties of GFRC, it indicates the absolute strength of the material, something every concrete countertop maker wants to know. Need more than one copy? Modulus of Elasticity is a property well known to engineers and is crucial in structural calculations.


Remember me for one month. However, neither the deflection recording device nor the chart recorder is needed to measure or calculate the Flexural Ultimate Strengthwhich is the absolute strength of the material before it fails.

Additionally, measuring only the Flexural Ultimate Strength simplified the construction of the machine, as Modulus of Elasticity measurements require a much more expensive machine. Already Subscribed to this document. In order to assess the effectiveness of the polymers, it was necessary to first build, test and calibrate an in-house test machine, cast and test many, many samples, analyze the collected data, and finally, interpret those data in order to draw meaningful and helpful conclusions relevant to the concrete countertop industry.

Enter your personal account email address to request a password reset: The Flexural Yield Strength also called limit of proportionality. It is well known from decades of research that the addition of wet polymers to GFRC function to eliminate the need for a 7-day wet cure. Add to Alert PDF. As stated in our report, multiple identical samples were tested at Applied Materials and Engineering in Oakland California, the same facility that has conducted manufacturer-sponsored testing for at least one of the dry polymers we tested.

Understanding GFRC Tests

The electronic file may not be reproduced in any way. The values of flexural properties obtained using ASTM C are useful in quality control, ascertaining compliance, research and development, and product design. Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts. The ASTM C test requires the use of a deflection measuring device and a chart recorder to produce a force-deflection chart.

Subscription pricing is determined by: The right to access the electronic files of ASTM Standards is for purposes of viewing for individual use only. This testing procedure is designed to measure and calculate three characteristic properties of the GFRC: Proceed to Checkout Continue Shopping. ASTM C determines the flexural ultimate strength in bending and the yield strength of glass-fiber reinforced concrete sections by the use of a simple beam of 1.

We have no amendments or corrections for this standard. The machine itself was also valid for the purpose of testing Flexural Ultimate Strength.
