Significance and Use
This test method offers a convenient alternative to solvent extraction for the approximate determination of top-coating bitumen and adhered aggregate in roofing samples, particularly when the bitumen is coal tar pitch.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the bitumen content of adhered aggregate surfacing on a roof, and the approximate mass per unit area of the flood coat and adhered aggregate.
1.2 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.
1.3 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 and regulatory limitations prior to use.
