MIL-HDBK-1001/5A
5.2
General Requirements
5.2.1
Felts.  Organic felts are
highly vulnerable to
moisture-induced deterioration; use
the more durable fiber glass
felts.  Organic felts can, however,
be used in temporary
membranes that are to be removed or
in coal-tar pitch membranes.
5.2.2
Modified Bitumen Flashing.  Single-ply modified bitumen
sheets may be used for flashing material.
5.2.3
Compatibility.  Check with the manufacturer of built-up
roofing membrane and flashing materials to assure that proposed
roof system and materials are compatible with roof deck, vapor
retarder, insulation, and geographic location.

Require bitumen manufacturer to provide equiviscous temperature
(EVT) stenciled on every bitumen container or tanker weight bill
to facilitate application at proper viscosity.
5.3.2
Good flashing design
requires the following:
a)
Elimination of as many penetrations as practical;
b)  Location of individual roof penetrations at least
18 inches (457 millimeters) apart;
18
