ASTM C Standard Guide for Evaluating Failure of Structural Sealant Glazing This guide covers a screening approach to detect failure adhesive or cohesive of a structural sealant in a structural sealant-glazed window, curtain wall, or other similar system. Presently, only a silicone-sealant that is specifically formulated, tested, and marketed as a structural glazing sealant is allowed for structural sealant glazing. ASTM C — 03 Standard Guide for In-Situ Structural Silicone Glazing Evaluation It is recommended to periodically evaluate the existing condition of structural sealant glazing hereinafter called SSG installations in situ to detect problems before they become severe or pervasive. Evaluation of existing SSG installations are required by certain building codes and local ordinances.

More C The sealant shall be composed of latex formulated with appropriate fillers, pigments, and chemical additives. The physical properties of the sealant shall conform to the specified requirements according to type and grade. The following tests shall be done: extrudability after aging, artificial weathering, volume shrinkage, low-temperature flexibility, extension-recovery and adhesion, slump, staining, and tack-free time.

Significance and Use 8. It should be recognized by the user that not all sealants meeting this specification are suitable for all applications and all substrates. It is essential, therefore, that the type and grade be specified for proper description of a sealant. Test methods relate to special standard substrates of glass, wood and aluminum. If tests are required using substrates in addition to or other than standard, they should be so specified for testing.
