Visual or tactile examination shall reveal no evidence of any hole, cracking or splitting, and no cluster of bubbles greater than 1 mm in diameter, or inclusions that are likely to affect properties. For GRP sheets, any defects such as resin ribs, glass folds or glass knots shall not exceed 5 mm in diameter. The edges of the sheet shall be straight and clean. Further requirements concerning the visual aspects of the sheets can be agreed upon between the manufacturer and the customer. Where required, the sheet shall be declared as “diffusing” or “non-diffusing” depending on whether the image of an object placed 1 m behind the sheet appears blurred or sharp, respectively. 5.2 Dimensional tolerances and mass per square metre The dimensional tolerances and mass per square metre shall be assessed when subject to regulatory requirement. When measured in accordance with the test methods as specified in 6.1.1 to 6.1.3 and Table 1, the dimensional tolerances and mass per square metre of the sheets shall conform to the requirements given in Table 1. SIST EN 1013:2013+A1:2015

EN 1013:2012+A1:2014 (E) 9 The test methods given in Table 1 are used for initial type testing, and are the reference test methods. Any other indirect test method may be chosen provided that it is sufficiently accurate to ensure that the dimensions of the products meet the requirements of Table 1 and as far as a correlation is demonstrated with the concerned reference test method. Table 1 — Dimensional tolerances and mass per square metre requirements Characteristic Test method Requirement Sheet thickness 6.1.4 The nominal thickness of the profiled sheet shall be declared. The mean value of the thickness of the profiled sheet shall not vary by more than ± 10 % of this value. The sheet thickness at any point of a sheet including crown, trough and sides of corrugation shall not vary by more than ± 20 % from the declared nominal thickness of the profiled sheet. Mass per square metre 6.1.5 The mass per square metre of the material in flat form, prior to profiling, which is the reference value, shall be controlled and declared. The mean value of the mass per square metre shall not vary by more than ± 10 % of the declared nominal mass per square metre. The mass per linear metre of profiled sheet, which can be calculated from the mass per square metre of the material in flat form, may be also declared. Cover width 6.1.6 The measured cover width shall be within ± 0,8 % of the declared nominal cover width. Shape of the sheet profile 6.1.7 When it is intended that the profile of the sheets shall match the shape of a dissimilar material (e.g. metal or fibre cement), the shape of the profile shall match the nominal shape with a maximum tolerance (deviation) at any point of 4 mm. Sheet length 6.1.8 The sheet length shall be within the interval from: — 0 mm to + 20 mm of the declared sheet length, for sheet length up to 2,5 m; — 0 % to + 0,8 % of the declared sheet length for sheet length greater than 2,5 m. Sheet straightness 6.1.9 The sheet straightness shall be less than or equal to 2,0 mm/m length. Squareness of a sheet 6.1.10 The out of squareness of a sheet shall be less than or equal to 0,5 % of the declared cover width. 5.3 Light transmission The total luminous transmittance shall be determined by testing five samples in accordance with 6.2 and calculating the mean value. The total luminous transmittance based on the mean value shall be declared and the mean value of subsequent measurements shall be within ± 5 % of the declared value. 5.4 Flexural/tensile strength The flexural/tensile strength shall be assessed when subject to regulatory requirement. The flexural strength and flexural modulus or the tensile strength and Young's modulus, as applicable, of the material of the sheets shall be measured in accordance with 6.4. SIST EN 1013:2013+A1:2015

EN 1013:2012+A1:2014 (E) 10 The flexural strength and flexural modulus or the tensile strength and Young's modulus, as applicable, based on the mean values, shall be declared and any subsequent measurement shall be a minimum of 80 % of the declared value. 5.5 Durability 5.5.1 General The durability shall be assessed when subject to regulatory requirement. The durability of profiled sheets shall be demonstrated by testing the variations after artificial accelerated weathering of the yellowness index, light transmission and flexural/tensile strength and declaring the results according to 5.5.3, 5.5.4 and 5.5.5, respectively. 5.5.2 Artificial ageing performance Artificial accelerated weathering shall be carried out: a) by xenon-arc lamps in accordance with EN ISO 4892-2:2006, Cycle 1, with radiant exposure given in Table 2, using one or more of the classes A0, A1, A2 or A3 as defined in Table 2; or b) artificial accelerated weathering shall be carried out by fluorescent UV lamps in accordance with EN ISO 4892-3:2006, Type 1A (UVA 340), Cycle 1, with test duration given in Table 3, using one or more of the classes B0, B1, B2 or B3 as defined in Table 3. CAUTION —Sheets shall be classified according to two different systems, respectively A0, A1, A2 or A3 and B0, B1, B2 or B3. Any comparison between two classes, one of each system, is not possible and shall be avoided because the two artificial accelerated weathering methods have their own test parameters which cannot be compared. NOTE New investigations and round robin tests would be necessary to decide whether a single method for assessing the ageing behaviour is achievable. This issue will be considered during the next revision of this standard.

The yellowness index shall be measured in accordance with 6.3. The amount of variation in yellowness for each applied class of Table 2 or Table 3, as applicable, shall be declared. The performance at class A3, or B3, as applicable, may be declared but the performance at higher classes of exposure shall only be declared provided that the yellowness index does not change by more than 20 units at any higher class(es) declared. 5.5.4 Variation of the light transmission after artificial ageing Variation of the light transmission after artificial ageing shall be assessed when subject to regulatory requirement. The total luminous transmittance shall be measured in accordance with 6.2. The variation of the total luminous transmittance, û2t, for each applied class of Table 2 or Table 3, as applicable, shall be declared, defined as the percentage reduction of the total luminous transmittance of an unaged sample as follows: 01t0ttttttt−∆= (1) where û2t0

is the total luminous transmittance, in percentage, of an unaged sample; û2t1

is the total luminous transmittance, in percentage, of an aged sample. The performance at class A3 or B3, as applicable, may be declared but the performance at higher classes of exposure shall only be declared provided that the variation of the total luminous transmission is not greater than 20 % at any higher class(es) declared. 5.5.5 Variation of the flexural/tensile strength after ageing The variation of the flexural/tensile strength after ageing shall be assessed when subject to regulatory requirement. The variation of properties after ageing shall be determined by assessing the variations of either the flexural strength and flexural modulus by a bending test, or the tensile strength and Young's modulus by a tensile test, both according to 6.4. SIST EN 1013:2013+A1:2015

EN 1013:2012+A1:2014 (E) 12 The percentage reductions of the flexural/tensile strength and flexural/Young’s modulus between unexposed test specimens and test specimens aged at the maximum exposure declared for variation of yellowness index and variation of total luminous transmittance shall then be expressed within the ranges ≤ 10 %, > 10 % to ≤ 20 %, > 20 % to ≤ 30 %, or > 30 %. 5.6 Thermal ageing resistance (only for thermoplastic sheets) The thermal ageing resistance of thermoplastic sheets shall be determined by assessing the variations of the total luminous transmittance, yellowness index and flexural/tensile strength, before and after exposure to dry heat according to 6.5. The variation of each property (i.e. yellowness index, light transmission, and flexural/tensile strength, measured in accordance with 6.3, 6.2 and 6.4 respectively) shall be declared, defined as the percentage reduction compared to an unaged sample. 5.7 Longitudinal reversion and profile retention (only for thermoplastic sheets) When tested in accordance with 6.6, the mean variations in dimensions of the sheet shall not exceed ± 2 % for the longitudinal reversion and ± 3 % for the profile retention. Where the conditions of use may lead to these figures being exceeded, the manufacturer’s documentation shall give guidance. 5.8 Impact resistance 5.8.1 Small hard body impact resistance The small hard body impact resistance shall be assessed when subject to regulatory requirement. The small hard body impact resistance shall be measured in accordance with 6.7. 5.8.2 Large soft body impact resistance The resistance to large soft body impact depends very heavily on the method of installation and the roof system into which the light transmitting sheet is incorporated, rather than a property of the sheet itself. The large soft body impact resistance of the same product is likely to be different when the same product is used in different roofing systems and/or installed with different methods of installation, and therefore cannot be declared for a particular product. In the absence of an appropriate European test method for sheets, the manufacturer may declare the method of installation for each application, which shall consider the large soft body impact resistance. The manufacturer shall assess the large soft body impact resistance separately in accordance with ETAG 010, EN 14963 or individual national safety requirements for each such application. Th
