Standard Specification for Atactic Polypropylene (APP) Modified Bituminous Base Sheet Materials Using Glass Fiber Reinforcements
|Publication Date:||1 November 2016|
|ICS Code (Reinforced plastics):||83.120|
This specification covers prefabricated modified bituminous sheet materials with glass fiber reinforcement, which use atactic polypropylene (APP) as the primary modifier and which are intended for use as a base sheet in the fabrication of multiple ply roofing and waterproofing membranes.
This is a material specification only. Issues regarding the suitability of specific roof constructions or application techniques are beyond the scope of this specification.
The specified tests and property limits used to characterize the sheet materials covered by this specification are intended to establish minimum properties. In-place roof system design criteria, such as fire resistance, field strength, impact/ puncture resistance, material compatibility, uplift resistance, the need for field applied coatings, and others, are factors beyond the scope of this material specification.
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 non-conformance with the standard.
The following precautionary statement pertains only to the test method portion, Section 8, of this specification. 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.
