Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers testing and material properties of water-dispersed protective roof coatings composed of a water-based acrylic latex elastomeric emulsion polymer, to which various pigments and other additives have been added to give the required physical properties. The product, as manufactured, shall be in liquid form for application to the roof surface by brushing, squeegeeing, rolling, or spraying. Guidance for its application is not addressed here. Coatings shall be tested and adhere to liquid property requirements as to viscosity, and volume and weight of solids. Conversely, films shall also conform to dry physical properties, as follows: initial percent elongation at break; initial tensile strength at maximum stress; final percent elongation at break after accelerated weathering; permeance; water swelling; adhesion; fungi resistance; tear resistance; and low temperature flexibility after accelerated weathering.
