Belden Chemical Resistant Floor Brick is manufactured to conform to the specification requirements of both ASTM C-279 and ASTM C-410 (industrial floor brick). Whenever close dimensional tolerances or minimal distortion is required, ASTM C-410, Tables II and III should be used for the dimensional standards of the specification.

NOTES:
1. Applicable Testing Specification Procedure - ASTM C67
2. Applicable Testing Specification Procedure - ASTM C885
3. Applicable Testing Specification Procedure - ASTM C1006
4. Conforms Under Test Method - ASTM C501
5. Conforms Under ASTM C904, Type I Material, Maximum = 0.11, Refer to Table No. 2 Titled "Abrasion Requirements". Belden Vertical Fibre Floor Brick has an abrasion resistance index almost 10 times greater than the most stringent requirement of this specification.
