To limit the probability of oxides in the lime being
hydrated after mortar placement, which could lead to the expansion
and cracking of mortar.
This is to limit the probability
of compromised structural integrity, which could lead to:
- structural failure of masonry construction,
- where masonry construction is part of an environmental
separator, the excessive deformation, displacement or failure of required
environmental separation elements, which could lead to deterioration,
which could lead to further compromised structural integrity, or
- in assemblies exposed to moisture or the exterior, damage
and deterioration, which could lead to further compromised structural
This is to limit the probability of harm to persons.
