ASTM C1697-10 Standard Specification for Blended Supplementary Cementitious Materials covers product containing two or three ASTM-compliant SCM and used to impart hydraulic or pozzolanic action in concrete or mortar. Blended or interground, the agents must be ASTM C618-grade fly ash, C1240 silica fume or C989 slag.
