This British Standard specifies the quality, workmanship, dimensions and performance requirements for two classes of waterproof building papers. Each class is divided into two grades and each grade into two types as follows:

  1. Class A. For building purposes, such as for the prevention of draughts or the ingress of water into wall or pitched roof structures but not for damp-proof courses such as are normally required by building byelaws.

    Class A papers are of two grades. They are:

    1. Grade A1, having higher tensile strength and bursting strength test requirements.

    2. Grade A2, having lower tensile strength and bursting strength test requirements.

  2. Class B. For temporary purposes, such as for the protection of concrete during curing or as an underlay to concrete to prevent moisture being absorbed by the base.

Class B papers are of two grades. They are:

  1. Grade B1, having a higher bursting strength test requirement.

  2. Grade B2, having a lower bursting strength test requirement.

All grades are sub-divided into the following types:
