Modern Architectural Sealants


Properly designing, installing, and maintaining sealant joints will prolong the life of any structure. When exterior sealants fail, the integrity of the entire building is at risk. Yet, when selecting and specifying joint sealants for their projects, architects and specifiers are faced with a myriad of options. This program will aid design professionals in making sense of the many considerations. The program presents fundamental joint sealant concepts, including formulation chemistries, applications, specification classifications, performance characteristics, preconstruction testing, joint design criteria, and application procedures. ASTM C 920 Standard Specification for Elastomeric Joint Sealants is discussed and used as the basis for information presented.
