ASTM WK28318

    Revision of D5385 - 93(2006) Standard Test Method for Hydrostatic Pressure Resistance of Waterproofing Membranes

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D08.22 | Committee D08 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The current method of preparing a test specimen involves applying the pressure of a 12.7 kg (28 lb)roller. This amount is believed to be significantly more pressure than would applied in an appliation of self adhering membrane on a below-grade wall. This revision proposes a lower weight for the roller to be used in preparing test specimens using self-adhering membrane.
