Color stability rankings provided by these two procedures may not agree.

It is possible d1193 the strain applied to the sealant bead may result in the failure of a deficient substrate before effecting a failure in the sealant. ASTM D Standard Test Method for Slump of Sealants This test method covers a laboratory procedure for the determination of the degree of slump of a sealant when used in a vertical joint in a structure.

ASTM C – 16 – Standard Guide for Use of Joint Sealants

The aztm of this method can be used in conjunction with other information to determine the overall performance of the sealant joint. This test method is conducted under aastm load in a shear mode.

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 guide provides information useful to design professionals, architects, manufacturers, installers, and others for the design and installation of silicone sealants for protective glazing systems. ASTM C Standard Guide for Evaluating Failure of Structural Sealant Glazing This guide covers a screening approach to detect failure adhesive or atm of a structural sealant in a structural sealant-glazed window, curtain wall, or other similar system.

Guide C should be consulted for this information. Guide C should be consulted for this information. Currently two main foam sealant types are applicable to this standard, single component polyurethane and latex types. These sealants are intended to structurally adhere components of structural sealant glazing systems.

Information in this guide is primarily applicable to a single and multi-component, cold liquid-applied joint sealant and secondarily to a precured sealant when used with a properly prepared joint c11193 and substrate surfaces.

Standard – Standard Guide for Use of Joint Sealants ASTM C –

Information in this guide is primarily applicable to single- and multi-component, cold-applied joint sealants and secondarily to precured sealant extrusions when used with properly prepared joint openings and substrate surfaces. ASTM C a Standard Test Method for Staining and Color Change of Single- or Multicomponent Joint Sealants This test method covers an accelerated laboratory procedure to determine if a sample of a joint sealant will stain the substrate when astk contract with masonry, concrete, or stone such as marble, limestone, sandstone, and granite.


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 Guide for Calculating Movement and Other Effects When Establishing Sealant Joint Width This guide provides information on performance factors such as asttm, construction tolerances, and other effects that should be accounted for to properly establish sealant joint size.

awtm ASTM D Standard Test Method for Shrinkage and Tenacity of Oil- and Resin-Base Caulking Compounds This test method describes a laboratory procedure for determining the shrinkage of oil- and resin-base Note caulking compounds, as well as the evaluation of the tenacity property of such compounds.

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 c11193 used to span joint openings in construction. 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.

Protective glazing includes systems designed for use in applications subject to natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, windstorms and forms of forced entry such as blasts, burglary, and ballistic attack.

Users of this test method must recognize that the IG edge seal assembly influences the secondary sealant properties. Only those properties for which there are industry-agreed-upon minimum acceptable requirements, as determined by available ASTM test methods, are described in this atm.

Hereinafter insulating glass is referred to as IG. Typical designs and considerations can be found in Guide C For specific aerosol foam sealant applications, operational temperature limit criteria shall be as agreed upon between the aerosol sealant manufacturer and the purchaser. Seals are applied in three different configurations: 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.

Active view current version of standard.

Such foam sealants are used for a variety of end use applications intended f1193 reduce air movement in the building envelope. It does not test the added influence of constant stress from hydrostatic pressure that is often present with sealants used in submerged and below-grade applications, nor does it test the added influence of stress from joint movement while immersed. The information and guidelines are also useful for those that c11993 accessories to the sealant industry and for those that install sealants and accessory materials associated with sealant use.


Evaluation of existing SSG installations are required by certain building codes and local ordinances. This test method applies to two types of single component aerosol foam sealants: Guide C should be consulted for information on generally accepted comparative values for the characteristics and properties of the more common generic types of liquid-applied sealant. Presently only certain silicone sealants are recognized as having the necessary durability for use as secondary sealant in IG units in SSG applications.

The committee with jurisdiction over this standard is not aware of any comparable standards published by any other organizations. ASTM C Standard Specification for Elastomeric Joint Sealants This specification covers the properties of a cured single- or multicomponent cold-applied elastomeric joint sealant for sealing, caulking, or glazing operations on buildings, plazas, and decks for vehicular or pedestrian use, and types of construction other than highway and airfield pavements and bridges.

Additionally, it also does not provide information or guidelines for the use of a sealant in an insulating glass unit edge asgm used in a structural sealant glazing application.

ASTM C1193 – 16

Compatibility is determined by measuring the changes c1193 the insulating glass edge sealant adhesive and cohesive properties. 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.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

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. The values given in parenthesis are provided for information only.
