For specific hazard statements, see 7. This is a test procedure.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The slope of the roof is significant. SITC has utilized this test method to assist our clients with their quality assurance testing of metal panel roof systems.

These factors shall be fully considered prior to specifying the test pressure difference. Practical considerations suggest that every combination of panel thickness, span, and design load need not be tested asym order to substantiate xstm performance. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that ast, provided for information only and are not considered standard.

The test is conducted by attaching the chamber to the test specimen. After applying the preload there is a two minute recovery period. The preload test pressure differences positive and negative are to be specified.

Read more about what our customers have to say The purpose of this test method is to conduct quality assurance water penetration testing of the roof including panel side laps and structural connections.

Composite systems in which the source cannot be readily determined are outside the scope of this test method. It is difficult to simulate the identical complex wetting conditions that can be encountered in service, including large wind-blown water drops, e166 water drop impact pressures with increasing wind velocity, and lateral or upward moving air and water.

A roof contains many details. Although prescribed modifications are outside the scope of this test method, an experienced testing engineer is able to use the principles presented in this test method and generate significant data by isolating specific details and measuring leakage.

This test method shall not, by itself, be relied upon to form conclusions about overall water penetration through metal roofs. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the axtm of regulatory limitations prior to use.

The calibrated spray racks shall deliver water uniformly against the roof surface at a minimum rate of five gallons per square foot per hour.

Prior to testing a positive static air pressure differential preload is applied.

Some designs are more sensitive than others to this upward moving water. It does not include leakage at openings or perimeter or any other details. The positive test pressure shall be greater than or asgm to 15 pounds per square foot.

For that reason the slope of the roof ee1646 a significant importance. These notes and footnotes shall not be considered as requirements of the test method.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. This process is repeated for a total of three cycles. A section of calibrated spray ast are set in place 12 inches above the specimen. In service, the performance also depends on the rigidity of supporting construction, roof slope, and on the resistance of components to deterioration by various causes: This test method is a specialized adaption of Test Method E Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

In applying the results of tests by this method, note that the performance of a roof or its components, or both, may be a function of proper installation and adjustment. Pre-loading is a essential part of the testing procedure. Then the specimen is preloaded with a negative static air pressure differential for a minimum of 10 seconds.
