Dear Mr. Black:
This is in response to your letter dated March 23, 1977, and confirms a recent telephone conversation with a member of my staff. Your letter concerned 29 CFR 1926.152 as it applies to Flintkote Trowel Mastic 710-23.
Subpart F of 29 CFR 1926 does not contain a definition of "liquid", therefore, in following 29 CFR 1910.5 and Chapter VIII of the Field Operations Manual you should go to 29 CFR 1910.106(a)(17) which defines "liquid" as:
...any material which has a fluidity greater than that of 300 penetration asphalt when tested in accordance with ASTM Test for Penetration for Bituminous Materials, D-5-65.The definition would exempt Flintkote Trowel Mastic 710-23 from coverage by 29 CFR 1926.152 if the penetration of this material is in the 70 to 90 range.
If I can be of any further assistance, please feel free to contact me.
