Significance and Use
5.1 This guide outlines general procedures and precautions for the application of fully adhered hot-applied built-up reinforced waterproofing systems.
5.2 This guide is not all inclusive and is intended only to supplement detailed instructions from designers, and the recommendations of manufacturers. Manufacturers of some of the systems addressed by this guide require proprietary products and special procedures not described in this guide. Manufacturers' recommendations should therefore be considered in the application of this guide.
5.3 For design guidelines, consult Guide .
1.1 This guide covers the minimum installation recommendations for fully adhered, hot-applied reinforced waterproofing systems on vertical and low-slope (plaza deck) surfaces.
1.2 For the purpose of this guide, the substrate is assumed to be concrete or masonry, structurally sound, able to accept the weight of anticipated loads, and meets the local building code requirements. Similarly, all components of the waterproofing system are assumed to comply with any federal, state, and local environmental regulations that may be in effect at the time of installation. Expansion joints, insulation, drainage layers, and overburden are beyond the scope of this guide.
1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.
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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory requirements prior to use.
1.5 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
