    Significance and Use

    These tests are useful in sampling and testing solvent bearing bituminous compounds to establish uniformity of shipments.

    1. Scope

    1.1 These test methods cover procedures for sampling and testing solvent bearing bituminous compounds for use in roofing and waterproofing.

    1.2 The test methods appear in the following order:

    Section
    Sampling4
    Uniformity5
    Weight per gallon6
    Nonvolatile content7
    Solubility8
    Ash content9
    Water content10
    Consistency11
    Behavior at 60°C [140°F]12
    Pliability at 0°C [32°F]13
    Aluminum content14
    Reflectance of aluminum roof coatings15
    Strength of laps of rolled roofing adhered with roof adhesive16
    Adhesion to damp, wet, or underwater surfaces17
    Mineral stabilizers and bitumen18
    Mineral matter19
    Volatile organic content20

    1.3 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 shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.4 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.
