ASTM C1872

Full Name

ASTM C1872 – Standard Test Method for Thermogravimetric Analysis of Hydraulic Cement


This test method provides a technique incorporating a thermogravimetric analyzer to determine the mass changes of hydraulic cement upon heating in an inert gas environment.

The data can be used to determine the abundance of some mineralogical components in hydraulic cement powders.
