ASTM SPECIFICATIONS FOR CONCRETE MASONRY UNITS - NCMA

Currently, seven ASTM standards apply to units intended primarily for construction of concrete masonry walls, beams, columns or specialty applications (see Table 1). The letter and first number of an ASTM designation is the fixed designation for that standard. For example, ASTM C55 is the fixed designation for concrete building brick.
