    Abstract

    This specification covers non-asbestos fiber-cement roofing shakes, shingles, and slates that are of designed varying profiles and thicknesses manufactured to provide the weather-exposed surfaces on roofs of buildings. These products shall be formed either with or without pressure and cured either under natural or accelerated conditions, to meet the physical requirements of this specification. Breaking load test, water absorption test, frost resistance test, warm water test, accelerated weathering test, water tightness and heat/rain resistance shall be performed to meet the specified requirements.

    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.

    Significance and Use

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers non-asbestos fiber-cement roofing shakes, shingles, and slates that are of designed varying profiles and thicknesses manufactured to provide the weather-exposed surfaces on roofs of buildings.

    1.2 This specification does not include details of product installation or system performance. Refer to the manufacturer's installation literature for proper installation instructions, to Specification C1459 for roofing systems performance, and to Test Method E108 for levels of fire resistance.

    1.3 This specification is not applicable to asbestos-cement or fiber-cement products as specified in Specifications C222 and C1225.

    1.4 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.

    1.5 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 requirements prior to use.
