Active view current version of standard. This practice describes two laboratory accelerated weathering procedures for evaluating the durability of a sealant.
ASTM C1193 – 16
The user of this practice should define the other parameters to be evaluated such as cleaning of the substrate, depth control of the sealant, sealant profile, etc.
Aerosol awtm sealants are used for a variety of applications intended to reduce airflow through the building envelope. ASTM C Standard Astmm Method 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.
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 asstm it test the added influence of stress from joint movement while immersed.
Sealant Standard Test Methods 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 in contract with masonry, concrete, or stone such as marble, limestone, sandstone, and granite.
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. For example, a building owner may require a new courthouse building to have an expected design life of 50 years.
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. Therefore, elements of the building’s exterior envelope should, with proper maintenance, be expected to perform for that time period.
The destructive procedure stresses the sealant in such a way as to cause either cohesive or adhesive failure of the sealant or cohesive failure of the substrate where deficient substrate conditions exist.
The designer of a joint seal should take the above into consideration when designing and specifying sealants for certain applications. ASTM C Standard Test Method for Color Stability of Building Construction Sealants as Determined by Laboratory Accelerated Weathering Procedures This test astmm describes laboratory accelerated weathering procedures using either fluorescent ultraviolet or xenon arc test devices for determining the color stability of building construction sealants.
