This test method covers the determination of the water and media retention of synthetic drains layers used in vegetative (green) roof systems.
This test method is applicable to geocomposite drain layers that retain water and media in cup-like receptacles on their upper surface. Examples include shaped plastic membranes and closed-cell plastic foam boards
This test method does not apply to products manufactured from water-absorptive materials.
