Things about ASTM-C1087: Standard Test Method for Determining Compatibility of Liquid-applied Sealants Accessories Used in Structural Glazing Systems

1.1 This test method covers a laboratory screening procedure for determining the compatibility of liquid-applied structural sealant glazing sealants when in contact with accessories such as dry glazing gaskets, spacers, shims, and setting blocks after exposure to heat and ultraviolet light.

1.2 This test method includes the observation of three parameters as follows:

1.2.1 Changes in the color of the sealant,
1.2.2 Changes in the adhesion of the sealant to glass, and 1.2.3 Changes in the adhesion of the sealant to the accessory being tested.

1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the

standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
