|Keywords:||asphalt; built-up roof; equiviscous temperature; roofing; softening point; synthetic wax; wax-modified asphalt;|
1.1 This specification covers wax-modified asphaltic products intended for use in built-up roof construction, construction of bituminous vapor retarder systems, adhering fleece-backed single-ply roof membranes, and adhering insulation boards used in various types of roof systems. The specification is intended for general classification purposes only, and does not imply restrictions on roofing system design, such as the slope at which this asphalt may be used.
1.2 These products have lower application temperatures compared to products specified by Specification .
1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
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.
