This weathering apparatus is used for comparing the weathering characteristics of bituminous materials against a reference material in which the outdoor weathering characteristics are known. It is not possible to establish a precise correlation between accelerated and natural weathering because of geographical climatic variations, local weather variation from normal, and local pollutants. Guide G 141 provides guidance regarding this issue.View Less
1.1 This practice describes test conditions and procedures for fluorescent UV and condensation exposures conducted according to Practices G 151 and G 154 for bituminous roofing and waterproofing materials that have a minimum softening point of approximately 95°C (200°F) as determined by Test Method D 36. (Also see Terminology G 113.)
