    Abstract

    This paper reviews sealant weathering test methods developed during the past 40 years and highlights the fact that repeated movement cycles were shown to be important to reproduce some of the damage seen on real buildings. The studies reviewed further demonstrate that water, sunlight (especially the UV portion), and heat are important degradation factors that act on real buildings.
