    ASTM D5665

    Abstract

    This specification covers thermoplastic fabrics such as polyester, polyester/polyamide bicomponent, or composites with fiberglass or polyester scrims that can be used during the construction of cold-applied roofing and waterproofing. The thermoplastic fabrics shall be classified as: Type I; Type II; Type III; Type IV; Type V; Type VI; and Type VII. Fabrics shall conform to the thickness, mass, and physical properties specified. Tests shall be performed to determine the properties of the material in accordance with the following test methods: unit mass; thickness; breaking load and elongation; trapezoid tearing strength; and puncture strength.

    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.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers thermoplastic fabrics such as polyester, polyester/polyamide bicomponent, or composites with fiberglass or polyester scrims that can be used during the construction of cold-applied roofing and waterproofing.

    1.2 This specification is intended as a material specification. Issues regarding the suitability of specific roof constructions or application techniques are beyond the scope of this specification.

    1.3 The specified tests and property values used to characterize the respective fabrics are intended to establish minimum properties. In-place system design criteria or performance attributes are factors beyond the scope of this material specification.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parenthesis are for information only.
