    Abstract

    This specification covers Grades G (granule surfaced) and S (smooth surfaced) prefabricated bituminous sheet materials with glass fiber reinforcement that has been modified by styrene butadiene styrene (SBS) thermoplastic elastomer, and are intended for use in the fabrication of multiple ply roofing and waterproofing membranes. This specification is intended as a material specification only, and does not address issues regarding the suitability of the specific roof constructions or application techniques. The specified tests and property limits used to characterize the sheet materials are intended to establish minimum properties, Hence, roof system design criteria such as fire resistance, field strength, impact/puncture resistance, material compatibility, uplift resistance, and others are factors beyond its scope. Material properties for which the sheet materials should adhere to are peak load before and after heat conditioning, elongation at peak load, ultimate elongation, tear strength, low temperature flexibility, dimensional stability, compound stability at specified temperatures, and granule embedment.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers prefabricated modified bituminous sheet materials with glass fiber reinforcement, with or without granules, that use styrene butadiene styrene (SBS) thermoplastic elastomer as the primary modifier and are intended for use in the fabrication of multiple ply roofing and waterproofing membranes.

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

    1.3 The specified tests and property limits used to characterize the sheet materials are intended to establish minimum properties. In-place roof system design criteria, such as fire resistance, field strength, impact/puncture resistance, material compatibility, uplift resistance, and others, 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 parentheses are for information only.
