|Publication Date:||10 January 1998|
|ICS Code (Binders. Sealing materials):||91.100.50|
1.1 This test method covers evaluation of the maximum static puncture load that roofing membrane samples can withstand without allowing the passage of water.
1.2 This laboratory test is conducted at any desired temperature using sheet membrane samples manufactured in a factory or prepared in a laboratory.
1.3 Roof membrane specimens to which the test method is applicable include bituminous built up, polymer-modified bitumens, vulcanized rubbers, non-vulcanized polymeric, and thermoplastic materials.
1.4 This test method is not applicable to aggregate-surfaced membrane specimens, but it is applicable to specimens having factory-applied granules.
1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.6 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.
