Significance and Use
Test values for the resistance of specific ply sheets, roll roofing, or shingles to selected fastener pull-through may assist in the determination of appropriate fastener spacing. The relative behavior of different fasteners and fasteners with and without caps may be evaluated.
Laboratory data will not permit prediction of field performance, particularly long-term performance, and if all test conditions are not the same, data may not be comparable.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the force needed to pull a fastener through any type of roofing or waterproofing ply sheet, roll roofing, or shingle, or to cause fastener failure under specified laboratory conditions.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
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.
