The minimum physical properties for adhered, manufactured stone veneer are covered under ASTM C1670/C1670M, Standard Specification for Adhered Manufactured Stone Masonry Veneer Units. The minimum average compressive strength of the concrete used to produce manufactured stone units is 2,100 psi (15 MPa). In addition to compressive strength, ASTM C1670/C1670M also addresses a number of other key physical requirements for manufactured stone units to ensure quality and successful field performance. These properties include freeze/thaw durability, minimum bond strength, and drying shrinkage.

A summary of the minimum requirements of ASTM C1670/C1670M is provided in the attached document.
