Organization: ASTM International
Publication Date: 15 March 2008
Status: inactive
Page Count: 7
ICS Code (Concrete and concrete products): 91.100.30
significance And Use:

In service, vapor retarders may be exposed to a variety of conditions, so no one test will provide evaluations related to performance for all exposures (refer to Guide E 241 and Practice C 755).... View More

scope:

1.1 These test methods 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.

1.2 The test methods included are:

Section
Water-Vapor Transmission of Material as Received 7
Water-Vapor Transmission after Wetting and Drying and after Long-
Time Soaking
8
Tensile Strength 9
Resistance to Puncture10
Resistance to Plastic Flow and Elevated Temperature11
Effect of Low Temperatures on Flexibility12
Resistance to Deterioration from Organisms and Substances in Con-
tacting Soil
13
Resistance to Deterioration from Petroleum Vehicles for Soil Poisons14
Resistance to Deterioration from Exposure to Ultraviolet Light15
Resistance to Flame Spread16
Report17

1.3 The values stated in acceptable metric units shall be considered standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.

1.4 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.
