Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 October 2008
Status: active
Page Count: 7
ICS Code (Concrete and concrete products): 91.100.30
scope:

These test methods2 cover the determination of the properties of flexible membranes to be used as vapor retarders in contact with earth under concrete slabs, against walls, or as ground cover in crawl spaces. The test methods are applicable primarily to plastic films and other flexible sheets. The materials are not intended to be subjected to sustained hydrostatic pressure. The procedures simulate conditions to which vapor retarders may be subjected prior to and during installation, and in service.

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.

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 limitations prior to use.

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.

2 Some of these test methods were based originally on Report No. 2040, U.S. Forest Products Laboratory, and "Vapor Barrier Materials for Use with Slab-On- Ground Construction and as Ground Covers in Crawl Spaces," Publication 445-1956, Building Research Advisory Board (currently out-of-print).
