Historical (view previous versions of standard)
1.1 This specification covers three types of asphalt suitable for use as a mopping coat in dampproofing; or as a plying or mopping cement in the construction of membrane waterproofing systems with felts in accordance with Specification D226; fabrics in accordance with Specifications D173 or D1668 (asphalt types); asphalt-impregnated glass mat in accordance with Specifications D2178; and with primer in accordance with Specification D41.
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 should 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 of regulatory limitations prior to use.
