    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the procedure for testing asphalt shingles that are resistant to wind blow-up or blow-off when applied on low slopes in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. It is generally used to determine the blow-off resistance of the sealed shingles at a given wind velocity, but may be used to test unsealed or sealed shingles at other wind velocities as is applicable.

    1.2 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.
