Things about ASTM-C1193: Standard guide for use of joint sealants

1.1 This guide describes the use of a cold liquid-applied sealant for joint sealing applications. Including joints on buildings and related adjacent areas, such as plazas, decks, and pavements for vehicular or pedestrian use, and types of construction other than highways and airfield pavements and bridges. Information in this guide is primarily applicable to a single and multi-component, cold liquid-applied joint sealant and secondarily to a precured sealant when used with a properly prepared joint opening and substrate surfaces.

1.2 An elastomeric or non-elastomeric sealant described by this guide should meet the requirements of Specification C 834, C 920, or C 1311.

1.3 This guide does not provide information or guidelines for the use of a sealant in a structural sealant glazing applica- tion. Guide C 1401 should be consulted for this information. Additionally, it also does not provide information or guidelines for the use of a sealant in an insulating glass unit edge seal used in a structural sealant glazing application. Guide C 1249 should be consulted for this information.

1.4 Practice C 919 should be consulted for information and guidelines for the use of a sealant in an application where an acoustic joint seal is required.

1.5 This guide also does not provide information relative to the numerous types of sealant that are available nor specific generic sealant properties, such as hardness, tack-free time, or curing process, among others. Guide C 1299 should be con- sulted for information on generally accepted comparative values for the characteristics and properties of the more common generic types of liquid-applied sealant.

1.6 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parenthesis are provided for information only.
