AbstractQuality control of roofing and waterproofing membranes occurs at four distinct stages: 1) characterization of raw materials with respect to degree of purity required for an established formulation prior to production; 2) control of processing and manufacturing variables during production to permit necessary corrections before defective materials are produced; 3) testing and evaluation of finished products for conformity with the established standards or as agreed upon by the supplier and purchaser; where the latter is a large company or a government agency, compliance with a specification is usually required; 4) control and inspection of workmanship quality on the job site during the application in accordance with the architect's, engineer's or project manager's detailed job specification. Stage 3 has already been discussed in the author's previous publications. This paper highlights some of the quality control aspects and methods that could be implemented in stages 1, 2, and 4.
