Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 January 1990
Status: inactive
Page Count: 8
ICS Code (Waterproofing): 91.120.30
scope:

1. Scope

1.1 These practices are limited to consideration of means to minimize water-induced damage in new or existing building constructions by not only design, materials selection, and construction, but also by building management and maintenance. Values for properties are not included because design and site conditions must be considered.

1.2 These practices are intended to emphasize the need to evaluate factors that may affect the serviceability time of constructions. All related factors have not been included because the typical factors described will illustrate the physical principles that are involved in avoiding moisture problems. Therefore, this standard is not suited to direct use in codes. The one factor that must be recognized and followed to assure good performance of constructions is thorough maintenance.

1.3 Consideration must be given to the effect of the interactions of materials that may affect their long-time compatibility in addition to specifications for materials and their properties that in the past have been presumed to assure that acceptable performance will always result.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address the safety problems 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.
