ASTM D3462/D3462M REV A: Standard Specification for Asphalt Shingles Made from Glass Felt and Surfaced with Mineral Granules
SDO: ASTM: ASTM International
DOD Adopted ANSI Approved Approved
This specification covers asphalt roofing in shingle form, composed of glass felt or felts impregnated and coated on both sides with asphalt, and surfaced on the weather side with mineral granules. This specification is designed for the evaluation of products as manufactured. The test methods, physical requirements, and minimum masses are to be measured immediately after packaging or at a reasonable time, as agreed upon between buyer and seller, after manufacture and before installation. Physical and performance requirements after application and during in-service use of the products described herein are beyond the scope of this material specification.
Shingles meeting this specification are intended to be applied with a headlap of not less than 51 mm (2 in.).
The shingles shall be supplied with a factory-applied self-sealing adhesive or be designed to be locked together during installation of the shingles.
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.
The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method described in this specification: 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.
