1.1 This specification covers non-reinforced, fabric- or scrim-reinforced and fabric-backed vulcanized rubber sheet made from ethylene-propylene-d
1.2 The test methods and property limits used to characterize these sheets are specific for each classification and are minimum values to make the product fit for its intended purpose.
1.3 In-place roof system design criteria, such as fire resistance, field seaming strength, material compatibility, and uplift resistance, among others, are factors that must be considered but are beyond the scope of this specification.
