Significance and Use
These tests are useful in sampling and testing solvent bearing bituminous compounds to establish uniformity of shipments.
1.1 These test methods cover procedures for sampling and testing solvent bearing bituminous compounds for use in roofing and waterproofing.
1.2 The test methods appear in the following order:
|Weight per gallon||6|
|Behavior at 60°C [140°F]||12|
|Pliability at –0°C [32°F]||13|
|Reflectance of aluminum roof coatings||15|
|Strength of laps of rolled roofing adhered with roof adhesive||16|
|Adhesion to damp, wet, or underwater surfaces||17|
|Mineral stabilizers and bitumen||18|
|Volatile organic content||20|
1.3 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.
1.4 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.
