1.1 This practice covers test procedures and conditions that are applicable when Test Methods D 5023, D 5024, D 5026, D 5279, and D 5418 are used for conducting dynamic mechanical analysis of roofing and waterproofing membrane material in three-point bending, compression, tension, torsion, and dual cantilever modes, respectively. The specific method is selected by the analyst and depends on the membrane material and the operating principles of the individual instrument used for the analysis.
1.2 This practice covers test procedures and conditions that are applicable when Test Method E 1131 is used for conducting thermogravimetry of roofing and waterproofing membrane material.
1.3 Membrane materials include bituminous built-up roofing, polymer-modified bitumen sheets, vulcanized rubbers, non-vulcanized polymeric sheets, and thermoplastics. The membrane materials can be either nonreinforced or reinforced.
1.4 This practice is applicable to new membrane materials received from the supplier, those exposed artificially in the laboratory or outdoors on an exposure rack, and those sampled from field installations.
1.5 This practice contains notes which are explanatory and are not part of the mandatory requirements of this practice.
1.6 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
1.7 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.
