LIGHTWEIGHT AGGREGATES FOR MASONRY UNITS AND STRUCTURAL CONCRETE

This British Standard has been prepared under the direction of the Cement, Gypsum, Aggregates and Quarry Products Standards Policy Committee and is a revision of BS 3797 : Part 2 : 1976 which is withdrawn. In this revision the opportunity has been taken to include foamed or expanded blastfurnace slag previously covered by BS 877, and clinker and furnace bottom ash aggregates previously covered by BS 1165, which are now withdrawn. In order to classify materials as lightweight aggregate suitable for concrete mixes or masonry, maximum and minimum bulk density limits have been specified. Requirements for grading, sulphate content and loss-on-ignition have also been given where applicable. (TRRL)
