DRS 426-1: 2020 Masonry Cement — Part 1: Composition, specifications and Conformity criteria (25 page(s), in English)

This Draft Standard specifies the definition and composition of masonry cements as commonly used for the production of mortar for bricklaying and block-laying and for rendering and plastering. It includes physical, mechanical and chemical requirements and defines strength classes. It also states the conformity criteria and the related rules. Necessary durability requirements are also given.

Note: For normal applications the information given in this draft standard, in RS 108 and in RS 211 is generally sufficient. However, in special cases, an exchange of additional information between the masonry cement producer and user can be helpful. The details of such an exchange are not within the scope of this draft standard but should be dealt with in accordance with national standards or other regulations or can be agreed between the parties concerned.
