A bridge joint, a beveled bridge joint, and a U-joint. The results of this method can be used in conjunction with other information to determine the overall performance of the sealant joint.
The method is intended to estimate the contents of the aerosol container 1 for purposes of label statements, and 2 to provide the user information needed to estimate job requirements. ASTM C Standard Practice for Conducting Tests on Sealants Using Artificial Weathering Apparatus This practice covers three types of laboratory weathering exposure procedures for evaluating the effect of actinic radiation, heat, and moisture on sealants.
It is possible that the strain applied to the sealant bead may result in the failure of a deficient substrate before effecting a failure in the sealant. Note 1 – This is not a suitable test method for water-base products. ASTM C Standard Test Method for Effects of Heat Aging on Weight Loss, Cracking and Chalking of Elastomeric Sealants After Cure This test method covers a laboratory procedure for determining the effects of heat aging on weight loss, cracking and chalking of elastomeric joint sealants single and multicomponent for use in building construction.
The information and guidelines are also useful for those that supply accessories to the sealant industry and for those that install sealants and accessory materials associated with sealant use. This test method is applicable to self-leveling and non-sag grades of sealant. This test method also does not in its standard form test the added influence of acids or caustics or other materials that may be in the liquid, in many applications.
Compatibility is determined by measuring the changes in the insulating glass edge sealant adhesive and cohesive properties.
ASTM C1193 – 16
Including joints on buildings and related adjacent areas, such as plazas, decks, and pavements for vehicular or pedestrian use, and types of construction other than highways and airfield pavements and bridges. ASTM C Standard Test Method for Adhesion-in-Peel of Elastomeric Joint Sealants This test method covers a laboratory procedure for determining the strength and characteristics of the peel properties of a cured-in-place elastomeric joint sealant, single- or multicomponent, for use in building construction.
Other conditions such as one, three, five, six sided may be used. Such factors as possible unit fogging or primary sealant reaction in a dual-seal system due to volatile components permeating the IG sealant are not considered in this test method.
It presents guidelines for the use and application of the various materials, design of a sealant joint for a specific application, and environmental conditions and effects that are known to detrimentally affect a sealant joint. ASTM C Standard Test Method for Staining of Porous Substrate by Joint Sealants This test method covers four types of laboratory tests to determine if a joint sealant has a probability of staining a porous substrate such as marble, limestone, sandstone, and granite.
For example, a building owner may require a new courthouse building to have an expected design life of 50 years. Active view current version of standard.
This test method also is intended to determine whether the sealant itself will change in color when exposed to the weather. The values given in parenthesis are provided for information only.
For specific aerosol foam sealant applications, operational temperature limit criteria shall be as agreed upon between the aerosol sealant manufacturer and the purchaser. The exposure sources used in the three types of artificial weathering devices are the filtered xenon arc, fluorescent ultraviolet lamps, and open flame carbon arc based on Practices GGand Grespectively.
Aerosol foam sealants are used for a variety of applications intended to reduce airflow through the building envelope. Presently, only a silicone-sealant that is specifically formulated, tested, and marketed as a structural glazing sealant is allowed for structural sealant glazing. ASTM C Standard Test Methods for Release Papers Used With Preformed Tape Sealants These test methods cover laboratory procedures for evaluating the release characteristics of a release paper intended to be supplied in direct contact with a preformed tape sealant.
ASTM C Standard Practice for Evaluating Adhesion of Installed Weatherproofing Sealant Joints This practice describes field tests to determine the adhesive and cohesive characteristics of an installed sealant joint, by manually placing a strain on the sealant.
Sealants by Disk Method This test method covers a laboratory procedure for determining the tensile adhesive strength of a preformed tape sealant. The sealant to be tested shall be fully cured. Edge seals for these applications use a structural sealant to bond both glass lites and the edge spacer into a monolithic sealed insulating glass unit. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
ASTM C Standard Specification for Structural Silicone Sealants This specification describes the properties of cold liquid applied, single-component or multicomponent, chemically curing elastomeric structural silicone sealants herein referred to as the sealant. ASTM C Standard Guide for Substrates Used in Testing Building Seals and Sealants D1193 guide describes the recommended standard substrates and their recommended surface preparation for use in standard tests of building seals and sealants.
ASTM C – 16 Standard Guide for Use of Joint Sealants
It evaluates the appearance and not the performance characteristics of the coated or painted joint. It does not test the added influence of constant stress from hydrostatic pressure that is often present with sealants used in submerged and c193 applications, nor does it test the added influence of stress from joint movement while immersed.
ASTM C Standard Guide for Paintability of Latex Sealants This guide describes the practical considerations that may be used to determine the compatibility of a paint or coating to be applied over a latex sealant or caulk. Presently only certain silicone sealants are recognized as having the ast, durability for use as secondary sealant in IG units in SSG applications ASTM C Standard Specification for Precured Elastomeric Silicone Joint Sealants Precured elastomeric silicone joint sealants, hereinafter referred to as seal, are manufactured in flat, cured, extruded shapes and are primarily used to span joint openings in construction.
Users of this test asym must recognize that the IG edge seal assembly influences the secondary sealant properties.
Standard Guide for Use of Joint Sealants
The elastomeric sealants described by this guide meet the requirements of Specifications C v1193, Cor C ASTM C Standard Specification for Precured Elastomeric Silicone Joint Sealants Precured elastomeric silicone joint sealants, hereinafter referred to as seal, are manufactured in flat, cured, extruded shapes and are primarily used to span joint openings in construction. These sealants are generally formulated to withstand a maximum joint movement of 7. Color stability rankings provided by these two procedures may not agree.
It explains the properties and functions of various materials, such as sealant, sealant backing, and primer, among others; and, procedures such as, substrate cleaning and priming, and installation of the components of a sealed joint.
Seals are applied in three different configurations: In typical applications, the structural sealant acts to hold the outside lite in place under wind and gravity load and to maintain the edge spacer in its proper position. ASTM C — 07 Standard Guide for Structural Sealant Glazing Structural sealant glazing, hereinafter referred to as SSG, is an application where a sealant not only can function as a barrier c11193 the passage of air and water through a building envelope, but also primarily provides structural support and attachment of glazing or other components to a window, curtain wall, or other framing system.
This method describes both nondestructive and destructive procedures. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. This test method includes the observation of three parameters as follows: ASTM C Standard Test C1193 for Determining Modulus, Tear and Adhesion Properties of Precured Elastomeric Joint Sealants This test method describes a laboratory procedure for measuring modulus, tear, joint movement ability and adhesion properties of applied, Precured Elastomeric Joint Sealants, hereinafter referred to as “applied seal” and if not applied, hereinafter referred to as “seal,” on portland cement mortar as a standard substrate and or other substrates.
These sealants are intended to be a structural component of sealed insulating glass IG units used in structural sealant glazing hereinafter referred to as SSG.
