This document applies to all bonded sheet waterproofing membranes that are used beneath ceramic tiling for internal and external tile installations on walls and floors. This document provides the terminology concerning the products and specifies the test methods and the values of performance requirements for bonded sheet waterproofing products associated with tile adhesives. Furthermore, this document specifies the evaluation of conformity and the classification and designation of all bonded sheet waterproofing products beneath ceramic tiling. NOTE 1 Bonded sheet waterproofing products can also be used beneath other types of tiles (natural and agglomerated stones etc.), where they do not adversely affect these materials. NOTE 2 This document does not address crack isolation, decoupling, sound control, thermal properties, or any aspect of membranes apart from waterproofing.

This European Standard specifies a methodology for the characterization of mortars by using the most appropriate analytical techniques on samples taken from cultural heritage structures and objects.
This standard contains guidelines for the selection of methods to determine mineralogical, textural, physical, chemical and mechanical properties of mortars used in cultural heritage structures and objects. This information is used to define mortar typology and to evaluate the mortar condition with respect to its conservation as well as for understanding of the ongoing deterioration processes.

This European Standard specifies the scheme for the assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) of cements to their corresponding product specification standards, including certification of constancy of performance by a product certification body.
The standard provides technical rules for factory production control by the manufacturer, including autocontrol testing of samples, and for the tasks of the product certification body. It also provides rules for actions to be followed in the event of non-conformity, the procedure for the AVCP and requirements for dispatching centres.
In this European Standard, the word “cement” is used to refer both to common cements as defined in EN 197 1 and to other cements and binders for which the relevant product specification standard makes reference to this European Standard and which are submitted for certification. Such a cement is produced at a given factory and belongs to a particular type and a particular strength class, as defined and specified in the relevant product specification standard.
The guidelines given in the Technical Report CEN/TR 14245 [1] ) should be used for the application of this European Standard.
This European Standard should be linked with Annexes ZA of European Standards covering cements and binders, i.e. EN 197 1, EN 14216, EN 14647, EN 413 1, EN 15743, in particular for the assignments of tasks to the manufacturer and to the product certification body.
NOTE   The reason for having drafted this separate document is that the provisions it includes are applicable to different products covered by different European Standards.
Guidance
EN 197-2 deals with the evaluation of conformity of cements and binders that are submitted for certification. It deals in particular with cases where “further testing” of the product is undertaken, as is the case for attestation system 1+ under the Construction Products Regulation. The products for which EN 197-2 is applicable are: the common cement products and the low heat cements and the sulfate resisting cements, refer to EN 197-1, the very low heat special cements, refer to EN 14216, the supersulfated cements, refer to EN 15743, the calcium aluminate cements, refer to EN 14647, and the masonry cements, refer to EN 413 1.

This European Standard specifies the apparatus and procedure for determining the heat of hydration of cements and other hydraulic binders at different test ages by isothermal conduction calorimetry.
This test procedure is intended for measuring the heat of hydration of cement up to 7 days in order to obtain data homogeneous with EN 196 8. Nevertheless this test duration may be critical for some apparatus, even if they can work properly at shorter test ages.
Contrary to EN 196 8 (solution method) this method gives the heat of hydration continuously over the time. Additionally, the heat flow versus time is given.

This European Standard describes three methods of determining the fineness of cement.
The sieving method serves only to demonstrate the presence of coarse cement particles. This method is primarily suited to checking and controlling the production process.
The air-jet sieving method measures the retention on sieving and is suitable for particles which substantially pass a 2,0 mm test sieve. It may be used to determine the particle size distribution of agglomerates of very fine particles. This method may be used with test sieves in a range of aperture sizes, e.g. 63 μm and 90 μm.
The air permeability method (Blaine) measures the specific surface area (mass related surface area) by comparison with a reference material sample. The determination of the specific surface area serves primarily to check the consistency of the grinding process of one and the same plant. This method only enables a limited assessment of the properties of the cement in use.
NOTE   The air permeability method may not give significant results for cements containing ultrafine materials.
The methods are applicable to all the cements defined in EN 197.

ISO 10426-1:2009 is applicable to well cement classes A, B, C and D, which are the products obtained by grinding Portland cement clinker and, if needed, calcium sulfate as an interground additive. Processing additives can be used in the manufacture of cement of these classes. Suitable set-modifying agents can be interground or blended during manufacture of class D cement.
ISO 10426-1:2009 is also applicable to well cement classes G and H, which are the products obtained by grinding clinker with no additives other than one or more forms of calcium sulfate, water or chemical additives as required for chromium (VI) reduction.

This European Standard is applicable to factory-made renders and plasters based on organic binders used for external or internal covering on walls, columns, partitions and ceilings. The products are manufactured in paste form, ready to use, or in powder form. This European Standard is also applicable to renders and plasters with inorganic binders such as silicates, silanes, siloxanes and silicones.
Renders and plasters can form the final surface of the structure, textured or not, or they can provide a levelling of the substrate, adequately smooth for subsequent decorative treatments.
This European Standard contains definitions and final performance requirements. It includes relevant characteristic categories to designate renders and plasters.
This European Standard provides for the assessment and verification of constancy of performance (AVCP) of the product to this European Standard. The marking requirement for products covered by this European Standard is included.
This European Standard is not applicable to coating materials and coating systems according to EN 1062-1 and EN 13300.
This European Standard does not contain recommendations for the design and application of renders and plasters. However, this European Standard may be used for definition of renders and plasters in conjunction with codes of application and national specifications for execution of works.

This European Standard specifies requirements for factory-made masonry mortars (bedding, jointing and pointing) for use in masonry walls, columns and partitions (e.g. facing and rendered masonry, load bearing or non-load bearing masonry structures for buildings and civil engineering works).
This European Standard defines for fresh mortar the performance related to workable life, chloride content, air content, density and correction time (for thin-layer mortar only). For hardened mortar it defines, e.g. performances related to compressive strength, bond strength, density measured according to the corresponding test methods contained in separate European Standards.

This European Standard specifies the methods for determining standard consistence, setting times and soundness of cements.
The method applies to common cements and to other cements and materials, the standards for which call up this method. It may not apply to other cement types that have, for example, a very short initial setting time. The method is used for assessing whether the setting time and soundness of a cement is in conformity with its specification.
This part of EN 196 describes the reference methods and allows the use of alternative procedures and equipment, as indicated in notes, provided that they have been calibrated against the reference methods. In the event of a dispute, only the reference equipment and procedures are used.
