ASTM D146 / D146M - 04(2012)e1 Standard Test Methods for Sampling and Testing Bitumen-Saturated Felts and Woven Fabrics for Roofing and Waterproofing
Description of Standard
These test methods cover the sampling and examination of felts and woven fabrics, saturated or impregnated but not coated with asphaltic or coal-tar materials, for use in waterproofing or for the construction of built-up roof coverings. After appropriate sampling, representative specimens shall be examined for the mass of wrapping material and mandrel (core), net mass per unit area, appearance and dimension of rolls, detached comminuted surfacing, moisture, strength, pliability, and loss on heating. Consequently, desaturated felt or fabric shall be examined for weight, retained carbonaceous matter, total comminuted surfacing, bituminous saturant, thread count of fabrics, thickness of felts, and ash content.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 These test methods cover the sampling and examination of felts or woven fabrics, saturated or impregnated but not coated with asphaltic or coal-tar materials, for use in waterproofing or for the construction of built-up roof coverings.
1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
