Standard Specification for Blended Hydraulic Cements
Published by ASTM International, 07/15/2021
ASTM C595/C595M, 2021 Edition – Standard Specification for Blended Hydraulic Cements
This specification pertains to blended hydraulic cements for both general and special applications, using slag, pozzolan, limestone, or some combination of these, with portland cement or portland cement clinker or slag with lime.
NOTE 1—This specification prescribes ingredients and proportions, with some performance requirements, whereas Performance Specification C1157/C1157M is a hydraulic cement specification in which performance criteria alone govern the products and their acceptance.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. Values in SI units [or inch-pound units] shall be obtained by measurement in SI units [or inch-pound units] or by appropriate conversion, using the Rules for Conversion and Rounding given in IEEE/ASTM SI 10, of measurements made in other units [or SI units]. Values are stated in only SI units when inch-pound units are not used in practice.
The text of this specification refers to notes and footnotes, which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) are not requirements of the standard.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.

04.01: Cement; Lime; Gypsum
Volume 04.01 features specifications and test methods that establish the property requirements and measurement procedures for hydraulic cements, including portland, natural, pozzolanic, masonry, rapid hardening, and slag.
It includes standards that define the appropriate qualities of lime and limestone and how to analyze them for environmental and industrial uses.
The remaining standards in this volume address gypsum and related building materials and systems, including application procedures and related accessories, including exterior insulation and finishing systems (EIFS).
ASTM’s Manual of Cement Testing, a valuable companion to these standards, also appears in this volume.
