This test method permits detection, within 16 days, of the potential for deleterious alkali-silica reaction of aggregate in mortar bars. The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. When this test method refers to combined-unit standards, the selection of the measurement systems is at the user’s discretion.
WJE laboratories are accredited by AASHTO (R18) and ANAB (ISO/IEC 17025) to perform testing standard ASTM C1260 for Potential Alkali Reactivity of Aggregates (Mortar-Bar Method).
