ASTM Information

LCRS seeks to provide ASTM information on all of the exterior stones we distribute if available. The information we provide is developed through industry consensus and is drafted through cooperative effort among engineers, architects, geologists, producers, and installers of natural stone.

The criteria that applies to most natural stones used in building applications are:

ASTM Standards
C119 Terminology Relating to Dimension Stone
C120 Test Methods of Flexure Testing of Slate (Breaking Load, Modulus of Rupture, Modulus of Elasticity)
C1201 Test Method for Structural Performance of Exterior Dimension Stone Cladding Systems by Uniform Static Air Pressure Difference
C121 Test Method for Water Absorption of Slate
C1242 Guide for Selection, Design, and Installation of Dimension Stone Anchoring Systems
C1352 Test Method for Flexural Modulus of Elasticity of Dimension Stone
C1353 Test Method Using the Taber Abraser for Abrasion Resistance of Dimension Stone Subjected to Foot Traffic
C1354 Test Method for Strength of Individual Stone Anchorages in Dimension Stone
C170 Test Method for Compressive Strength of Dimension Stone
C217 Test Method for Weather Resistance of Slate
C241 Test Method for Abrasion Resistance of Stone Subjected to Foot Traffic
C503 Specification for Marble Dimension Stone
C568 Specification for Limestone Dimension Stone
C615 Specification for Granite Dimension Stone
C880 Test Method for Flexural Strength of Dimension Stone
C97 Test Methods for Absorption and Bulk Specific Gravity of Dimension Stone
C99 Test Method for Modulus of Rupture of Dimension Stone
