Standard Specification for Asphalt Roof Coatings, Asbestos Containing

Abstract

This specification covers two types of asbestos-containing asphalt roof coatings consisting of an asphalt base, volatile petroleum solvents, and mineral stabilizers including asbestos fiber, mixed to a smooth, uniform consistency suitable for application by squeegee, three-knot brush, paint brush, roller, or by spraying. Type I is made from asphalts characterized as self-healing, adhesive, and ductile, while Type II is made from asphalts characterized by high softening point and relatively low ductility. The coatings shall comply with specified composition limits of water, nonvolatile matter, asbestos and other mineral stabilizers, asphalt, and mineral matter based on original mass of insoluble residue. They shall also adhere to physical requirements as to uniformity, consistency, and pliability and behavior at given temperatures.
