    Abstract

    while the quality and performance of elastomeric sealants used in exterior building walls have improved, the occurrence of leakage and envelope failures attributed to sealant installation has not decreased. This paper will outline, from a contractor's viewpoint, what designers need to know with regard to sealant joint design and detailing to minimize building wall leakage attributed to sealant joint failures.
