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

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 asttm the peel properties of a cured-in-place elastomeric joint sealant, single- or multicomponent, for use in building construction. As a result of the information in 4. 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 Sealant Standards

Presently only certain silicone sealants are recognized as having the necessary durability for use as secondary sealant in IG units in SSG applications. Guide C should be consulted for v1193 on generally accepted comparative values for the characteristics and properties of the more common generic types of liquid-applied sealant. Other conditions such as one, three, five, six sided may be used.


This section lists ASTM global standards of relevance to the design-engineering community classified in one of three ways: The intent is for service life qstm meet or exceed design life. 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.

Evaluation of existing SSG ast are required by certain building codes and local ordinances. ASTM C Standard Guide for Calculating Movement and Other Effects When Establishing Sealant Joint Width This guide provides information on performance factors such as movement, construction tolerances, and other effects that should be accounted for to properly establish sealant joint size. Compatibility is determined by measuring the changes in the insulating glass edge sealant adhesive and cohesive properties.

Refer to for joint seal geometries.

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. ASTM C Standard Specification for Cylindrical Sealant Backing for Use with Cold C193 Sealants This specification covers the basic requirements for cylindrical sealant backing to be used with cold liquid applied sealants for use in d1193 seals.

ASTM C Standard Test Method for Effects of Laboratory Accelerated Weathering on Elastomeric Joint Sealants This test method covers a laboratory procedure for determining the effects of accelerated weathering on cured-in-place elastomeric joint sealants single- and multicomponent for use in building construction.

ASTM C1193 – 16

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. 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.


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. 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.

Sealant replacement needs to be considered and when needed should be easily accomplished.

Such foam sealants are used for a variety of end use applications intended to reduce air movement in the building envelope. 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. Active view current version of standard. Link to Active This link will satm route to the current Active version of the standard.

A bridge joint, a beveled bridge joint, and a U-joint. This method describes both nondestructive and destructive procedures. Hereinafter insulating glass asrm referred to as IG. Seals are applied in three different configurations: The elastomeric sealants described by this guide meet the requirements of Specifications CCor C Therefore, elements of the building’s exterior envelope should, with proper maintenance, be expected to perform for that time period. ASTM C Standard Test Method for Extrusion Rate of Elastomeric Sealants This test method covers two laboratory procedures for determining the extrusion rate of elastomeric sealants for use in building construction.

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 asttm exist. This guide focuses on large-scale remedies. 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.
