FURTHER DEVELOPMENT OF A UNIVERSAL TEST STANDARD FOR SEALANT DURABILITY AND IN-SERVICE STRENGTH

Test standard for sealant durability

Abstract

This work further develops and refines a test method for determining the adhesion properties of a broad range of sealants to typical construction substrates. Further confirmation is offered that the test has better discriminatory potential than existing methods. Also by correlating the level of adhesive failure to the measured strength of the joint, it is possible to determine a statistical sealant cohesive strength even in cases of partial adhesive failure.
