4.1 Determining the tensile-tear strength of laboratory and field samples of roofing membranes should be useful in developing performance criteria, and as one basis for comparison of different materials and systems. The effects of temperature, moisture, and aging may be evaluated by appropriate selection of field samples or conditioning of laboratory samples, and tests may be conducted in an environmental chamber.View Less
