This specification covers coal tar adhesive with or without polymer modification suitable for brush, spray, squeegee and trowel application to coal tar built up and coal tar modified bitumen membrane roofings and flashings. The adhesive shall be classified as: Type I and Type II. Coal tar adhesive shall consist of a processed coal tar base, volatile solvents, mineral stabilizers, with or without polymer modifiers excluding asbestos, mixed to a smooth consistency. The following test methods shall be performed to conform with the requirements of the material: nonvolatile matter; water; ash; lap shear strength; and peel strength.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

1.1 This specification covers coal tar adhesive with or without polymer modification suitable for brush, spray, squeegee and trowel application to coal tar built up and coal tar modified bitumen membrane roofings and flashings.
1.2 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.
