ASTM WK44062

    Revision of C1193 - 13 Standard Guide for Use of Joint Sealants

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C1193 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: C24.10 | Committee C24 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Some organizations have been validating the performance of a sealant tested in accordance with an ASTM Test Method performed by a certified laboratory on a product obtained from the marketplace, at some stated movement, on specific substrates, and indicating whether a primer was used. It has come to the attention of the committee that the term validation in regards to sealants has been misconstrued as meaning that the sealant is a good material. The committee would like to define validation to provide clarification for the industry.
