Standard Test Method for Kerosine Number of Roofing and Flooring Felt by the Vacuum Method
|Publication Date:||10 May 1996|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the relative saturating capacity of felt papers for roofing and flooring.
1.2 The results are reported in terms of the kerosine number of the sample.
1.3 While the results reported are numerical, they are used only as a relative measure of the saturating capacity of felt papers, and this test method as generally used provides a qualitative means to differentiate and rank various papers which are to be subjected to bituminous saturation.
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. Specific warning statements are given in 10.5.
