Developed by Subcommittee: D08.20
WITHDRAWN, NO REPLACEMENT
This test method covered the determination of the resistance of adhered membrane roofing systems to uplift pressure. It applied to roof systems with or without rigid board insulation or base ply, which were either adhered or mechanically fastened, and fully adhered membranes.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D08 on Roofing and Waterproofing, this test method was withdrawn in July 2013 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the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 resistance of adhered membrane roofing systems to uplift pressure. It applies to roof systems with or without rigid board insulation or base ply, which are either adhered or mechanically fastened, and fully adhered membranes.
1.2 This test method is intended to be used as a measure of the uplift resistance of the roofing system. Systems containing cold adhesive shall be in place for the cure time specified by the adhesive manufacturer to obtain optimum adhesion before conducting the test. Hot-applied systems shall be permitted to cool to normal prevailing surface temperatures before conducting the test.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
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.
