Durability Test Method - Determination Of Changes In Adhesion, Cohesion And Appearance Of Elastic ..

Summary

During their entire service life, weatherproofing joint seals in lightweight building facades are exposed to cyclic mechanical strain and environmental degradation, leading to sealed joint failure.  This technical recommendation specifies a laboratory procedure for assessing the effects of cyclic movement and artificial weathering on laboratory cured, elastic weatherproofing joint sealants (one- or multi-component) for use in high movement building facade applications.  Details are given of apparatus, preparation of specimens, conditioning, test procedures and test report.
