ASTM C629/C629M-22

Standard Specification for Slate Dimension Stone

1.1This specification covers the material characteristics, physical requirements, and sampling appropriate to the selection of slate for general building and structural purposes. Refer to Guides C1242 and C1528 for the appropriate selection and use of slate dimension stone.

1.2Dimension slate shall include stone that is sawed, cut, split, or otherwise finished or shaped, and shall specifically exclude molded, cast, or otherwise artificially aggregated units composed of fragments, and also crushed and broken stone.

1.3It specifically excludes roofing slate (see Specification C406/C406M) and slate for industrial uses.

1.4The 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.

1.5This 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.
