Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers emulsified asphalt adhesive for use in adhering preformed roof insulation to steel roof decks of specified inclines. When applied as a continuous film over an acceptable deck surface, the emulsion functions as both an adhesive and a vapor retarder. The adhesives shall be appropriately sampled and tested, and shall adhere accordingly to the following physical requirements: water vapor permeance; adhesive strength; freezing resistance; density; residue by evaporation; ash content of residue; and behavior during heat test.
