Standard Specification for Class A Asphalt Shingles Surfaced with Mineral Granules

Abstract

This specification covers mineral granule-surfaced asphalt roofing shingles. Covered here are the self-sealing (Type I) and non-self-sealing (Type II) types of shingles. The shingles shall consist of organic felt or glass mat(s) saturated or impregnated, and coated on both sides with a hot asphaltic material and completely surfaced on the weather side with mineral granules embedded in the coating. The reverse side of the shingles shall be covered with a suitable material to prevent the shingles from sticking together in the package, causing possible damage upon being unpacked at ambient temperatures. Type I shingles shall have a factory-applied adhesive that will seal the shingles together after application. Both types shall meet the conditions for Class A fire exposure, and loss and behaviour on heating tests. Type I shingles shall pass an additional wind resistance test.

Scope

1.1 This specification covers granule-surfaced asphalt roofing shingles that meet the conditions for Class A fire test, behavior on heating and wind testing of Type I shingles.

1.2 Shingles meeting this specification are intended to be applied with a headlap of not less than 51mm (2 in.).

1.3 The values stated in acceptable metric units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.
