This test method covers the determination of the relative saturating capacity of felt papers for roofing and flooring.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D06 on Paper and Paper Products, this test method was withdrawn in 2011 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the relative saturating capacity of felt papers for roofing and flooring.
1.2 The results are reported in terms of the kerosine number of the sample.
1.3 While the results reported are numerical, they are used only as a relative measure of the saturating capacity of felt papers, and this test method as generally used provides a qualitative means to differentiate and rank various papers which are to be subjected to bituminous saturation.
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. Specific warning statements are given in 10.5.
