This research measured selected physical characteristics of twelve roofing membranes before and after oven heat and ultraviolet exposure. To make these data useful for comparing values, identical test methods and conditions were used for each membrane. We intend to compare these data with before and after exposure data obtained on companion samples exposed outdoors at three locations in the United States in an effort to determine the laboratory program that might accurately predict the performance of roofing membranes.
