Test Procedure: Modified ASTM C666: “Standard Test Method for Resistance of Concrete to Rapid Freezing and Thawing”. Five 3” x 3”x 3” specimens were subjected to 300 freeze Thaw cycles as per ASTM C666 Procedure A (freezing and thawing in water). Before and after Freeze/thaw cycling the specimens were observed for Visible cracks, broken pieces, or other visible defects.
Test Results: All five (5) specimens showed no visible defects after 300 cycles of freeze/thaw.
