    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This specification covers corrugated asbestos-cement sheet products and lists accessories used in conjunction with application.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee C17 on Fiber-Reinforced Cement Products, this specification was withdrawn in November 2019. This standard is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers corrugated asbestos-cement sheet products and lists accessories used in conjunction with application. Corrugated asbestos-cement sheets are designed for the following purposes:

    1.1.1 To provide weather-resistant surfaces of roofs, walls, and other elements of buildings and structures, and

    1.1.2 For decorative as well as functional uses in any area where a corrugated sheet may be advantageous.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.3 Warning—Breathing of asbestos dust is hazardous. Asbestos and asbestos products present demonstrated health risks for users and for those with whom they come into contact. In addition to other precautions, when working with asbestos-cement products, minimize the dust that results. For information on the safe use of chrysotile asbestos, refer to “Safe Use of Chrysotile: A Manual on Preventive and Control Measures.”2

    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.
