ASTM C e1 Standard Test Method for Determining the Tensile Properties of an Insulating Glass Edge Seal for Structural Glazing Applications This test method covers a laboratory procedure for quantitatively measuring the tensile strength, stiffness, and adhesion properties of insulating glass edge c1139 that are used in structural sealant glazing applications.
Aerosol foam sealants are used for a variety of applications intended awtm reduce airflow through the building envelope. Sealants by Disk Method This test method covers a laboratory procedure for determining the tensile adhesive strength of a preformed tape sealant.
ASTM C Standard Test Method for Durability of Sealants Exposed to Continuous Immersion in Liquids This test method covers a laboratory procedure that assists in determining the durability of a sealant and its adhesion to a substrate while continuously immersed in a liquid. 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 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.
Additionally, it also does not provide information or guidelines for the use of a sealant in an insulating glass unit edge seal used in a structural sealant glazing application.
Standard Guide for Use of Joint Sealants
ASTM C Standard Test Method for Determining the Outgassing Potential of Sealant Backing This test method provides a procedure for determining the outgassing potential of a sealant backing when it is punctured during or after installation, with the puncture occurring before the sealant cures.
Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Currently two main foam sealant types are applicable to this standard, single component polyurethane and latex types. 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.
Such foam sealants are used for a variety of end use applications intended to reduce air movement in the building envelope. Guide C should be consulted for this information. 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.
It tests these properties after dry, wet, frozen, heat aged or artificially weather-aged conditionings, or both. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Standard – Standard Guide for Use of Joint Sealants ASTM C –
These sealants are intended to structurally adhere components of structural sealant glazing systems. This test method was previously written to include only hot applied sealants. 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 Asstm Standard Guide for Use in Selection of Liquid-Applied Sealants This guide covers general background information of the comparative evaluation and selection of liquid-applied sealants for use in building construction. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
This method describes both nondestructive and destructive procedures.
The IG units described are used in structural silicone sealant glazing systems, herein referred to as SSG systems. ASTM C Standard Test Method for Adhesion and Cohesion of One-Part Elastomeric Solvent Release Sealants This test method is a laboratory procedure that determines the adhesion and cohesion performance of one-part elastomeric, solvent release sealants at high and low temperatures by the extension and compression of test specimens. This test method also is intended to determine whether the sealant itself will change in color when exposed to the weather.
Limits the amount and depth of sealant applied into a joint; acts as a bond breaker to allow joint movement without undue stress to the sealant; provides a form to assist the sealant in developing the proper shape factor; and acts as a barrier to the flow of sealant through the joint. 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.
Typical designs and considerations can be found in Guide C 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.
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 Standard Test Method for Flow Characteristics of Preformed Tape Sealants This test method describes a laboratory procedure for determining the flow characteristics of preformed tape sealants after a specified time, temperature, and load.
Refer to for joint seal geometries. ASTM C Standard Specification for Cylindrical Sealant Backing for Use with Cold Liquid-Applied Sealants This specification covers the basic requirements for cylindrical sealant backing to be used with cold liquid applied sealants for use in building seals. 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 against 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 test method provides a means for estimating the quantity of initial material required to dispense in order to fill a cavity.
Considering the range of properties of commercially available sealants, the variety of joint designs possible, and the many conditions of use, the information contained herein is general in nature. Seals are applied in three different configurations: A bridge joint, a beveled bridge joint, and a U-joint.
ASTM C Standard Test Method for Determination of Water Absorption of Sealant Backing This test method covers a laboratory procedure for determining the water absorption characteristics of sealant backing and joint filler materials, hereinafter referred to as backing.
This test method includes the observation of three parameters as follows: Proper maintenance could include replacement of localized sealant and sealant joint failures and conceivably complete sealant replacement, perhaps more than once, during that 50 year time period depending on a sealant’s polymer base and its particular formulation. This guide provides information useful c11193 design professionals, manufacturers, contractors, and others for the design and installation of a SSG system.
Other conditions such as one, three, five, six sided may be used.
