ASTM C1138

Full Name

ASTM C1138 – Standard Test Method for Abrasion Resistance of Concrete (Underwater Method)


This test method covers a procedure for determining the relative resistance of concrete (including concrete overlays and impregnated concrete) to abrasion under water. This procedure simulates the abrasive action of waterborne particles (silt, sand, gravel, and other solids).

Other procedures are available for measuring abrasion resistance of concrete surfaces not under water. These include Test Methods C418, C779/C779M, and C944/C944M.
